here's how I did my youngest son and the dog (dog is on left) a few months back. He was just a little guy when I shot this picture. He's a big hulk now.Great pose I thought!
about 24x24 acrylic on canvas.

'Surfer Max'

tried to do a quick portrait of my oldest son Max....Ended up reworking it til I got crazy. When you know someone that well the slightest imperfection pulls your eye to it. Still looks loose enough for me and pretty damn close to how he looked last year when I took this photo.  acrylic on linen 13x17

'lantern dig'

This guy is going after the elusive Razor clam. You can tell by the fact that he's on both knees and has his wife holding the lantern that he's not a commercial digger. But you gotta hand it to them for going out after dark. Those clam holes are hard to see by lamp light.
This is about 20x15 done in oil on linen. SOLD
