The Art of Painting

This is a painting I have been working on. It isn't quite finished I need to finish the background. its a portrait of my friend's kids, Gemma and Lee. They are adorable kids and couldn't resist painting them. I struggled alot with getting Gemma's cuteness onto canvas and I've unintentionally made her look older than she is so there will be a little more fiddling before its complete. I'm hoping to do a few paintings for my exhibition in May but my painting comes in waves so there is no guarantee that I will. I'll guess i have to be stricter on myself! The piece is called 'Gemma and Lee' and its gouache on canvas.
