After 2 painting sessions I am feeling pretty good about this painting. I feel about 1/2 done. The top painting is the first sitting, and the bottom the 2nd sitting. They are both essentially value studies, but I think I like it without much color for now. I am not sure if I will add any more color, or keep it very monotone. They are starting to look like themselves as well. I have to let it cure a little before I can work on it again. I find myself more drawn to work on Naomi's little face than the others. (she is the far right). Maybe because she is looking at the viewer. I force myself to keep the other two up to the same level of finish. There is quite a bit of editing that happens in the process.
Naomi said "If mommy can't sell this painting of me than we get to keep it!!"........sad, and not exactly true.
