At last, something new! Half way through I had to put this one away for a very long time, trying to figure out why it wasn't working. To cut a long story short, I think it has turned out much better than I expected - I nearly gave up on it, like Miriam from the last post! In retrospect it would have been quicker to have simply started again. And strangely, when I compare it to my last large portrait of Steve, I think there are improvements particularly with colour saturation. I hope Ben likes it though - it will be interesting to know how an 8 year old feels about having his portrait done!
