oil portrait baby

Originally I wanted to make a small portrait of my girl from every birthday, but some just wouldn’t work. Art is not a science. Here is the one which succeeded, she was one year old. I’m pleased that I managed to somehow catch her uniqueness and happy look.


And working from a photo with poor lighting.


And because this blog is not about self-glorification I’ll add the failed ones too.

1 day old: I somehow failed in catching the cuteness, made her look ill, and gave her straw for hair.


2 years old. I do try to use photos from the actual birthday, which is limiting, but then that is no excuse for a crap portrait.
