Hi, just discovered your blog yesterday and I'm glad I did.

This portrait looks like you were able to have him pose for you long enough until you have the essentials on your canvas, or was it done from a photograph?

If it was from life, congratz to you because I can't get any of my children to pose for me at all! (I even tried bribing them)

Anyway, this painting is a beauty

Thank you Johan! This was painted from a photo. No way to have him pose this long :) The only time I was able to paint him from life was when he was sleeping.
