Grandchildren Portraits

I just completed this portrait of three sweeties recently. They are walking on the beach at Sea Ranch. I used multiple photo references to get the composition that I felt worked--mainly getting their arms to look like they are connected, guarding, and embracing. I changed the color of the little guy's pants, and was pleased with how the blue of the boots balance the blue of the ocean. I spent the most time on the faces and hands, leaving the surroundings more impressionistic (which I always like). Lots of prayer went into this one so that I could see it.

This portrait is one I did a while ago of a grandfather and granddaughter walking at Doran Beach. I used multiple photo reference--which was tricky because the grandfather had passed away and the photos were of low resolution and grainy. God really helped move my hands for this one as well.
