I finished Cade’s portrait yesterday and am happy with how he turned out. I painted his portrait in a looser style than I did his sisters because I thought the less finessed bolder brushstrokes would look more masculine. Cade has beautiful eyes in real life, very light blue/green. He has a quiet and kind personality and I think this comes through in his portrait. I like the feel of his sweatshirt, it looks thick and warm. His mouth gave me a little run for it because I didn’t want him to look like he was wearing lipstick. I look forward to seeing his and his sisters portraits together. I enjoyed the challenge of this one. I like how it looks in black and white so I converted the image.
