Mix It Monthly - November challenge - Kids and Graphic pattern


Over on Mix It Monthly (here), the challenge for this month was to do a painting of a child, to do some pattern and to use sea blue, pale pink, and green colors. A friend asked me if I had done paintings of my family and I realized that I have not. So I found this picture of my 6 year old Grandson.  I thought that it would be perfect with the pattern in his shorts, the tree for the green and the sky for the pink and blue. This is the best fun I have all month and I am doing things that I would never have done otherwise if it were not for this challenge. I hope you enjoy seeing it.

Conny over on Mix It Monthly has the honor of being one of the teachers in the Soul Food art class. She is giving away a spot in the class on Monday 11/11 here. If you'd like to win a spot in the class just go to the link and leave a comment.

This looks as if it would be difficult but you have painted such a good portrait. I like his hair, the way you have painted his clothes and rucksack, his checked shorts and the pink sky.
