Hey Nanci, great to see you on here! Hope all is well these days!This is lovely Nanci, looks a bit like pastel to me, I like the color and composition a lot, can't tell if its a good likeness of both figures but the granddaughter looks so sweet and the man looks very believable! As the painting in back lit with the light source in the upper left, I might add a bit more of that yellow orange to the outline of the heads and shoulder....just a couple of highlights would do it and maybe on the arm of the chair.the more I look, the more I like, very endearing piece Nanci!
Thanks Brian-I see what you mean. Maybe I will go back into the studio with it this afternoon with that in mind. Thanks Ralph!
Very nice. Destined to be a family heirloom! Don't mess with it too much.
Very nice warm and vivid!
