"THE SERIOUS ARTIST" 12" X 12" Pastel on Pastelbord nfs

I just completed this painting of my grandson, Landon. He's three years old and loves anything to do with art. He's comfortable with experimentation and is open to changing his original intention at any time. He loves to paint outside the lines and can complete a whole painting with just three colors. He uses a mixture of hard and soft edges, and he'll often disregard the true color of objects in favor of colors he feels are more suitable. There's so much I can learn from him!

  1. He's good! So is his grandmother! You did a beautiful job of capturing his concentration.

    It looks like he is a left-hander. So is one of my daughters.
