Father and Son

For the last two weeks I've been working on my first official commission. My sister hired me to paint a portrait of her son and I decided to paint her son and husband. It'll be going to her in-laws.

These are the first few in progress shot of this portrait. I think it'll be done in two weeks. Time enough for it to dry.

I just walked west today on Bloor. I stopped in for a quick coffee at Timothy's and stayed there far too long.

One of the issues of have with sketching people in public is that they move (I say that sarcastically). However, part of my drawing pattern is to draw a farely detailed image of what i see in front of me and moving people don't lend themselves to my way of drawing. So I'm trying to find a way of adapting to "moving people".
