Kickin’ it in the Backyard

February 1, 2013


L and C backyard


  1. You captured the innocence of the child’s face with so few strokes.

    I also like how you gave detail to the foreground but not the background,much the way we tend to notice things, yet the background has some personifying details, like L’s pocket on her shorts.

    Again, you have conveyed a great deal of facial information with few strokes on the L and C, so that, in mixing them all together, one gets the flavor of that social afternoon among family. Very nice.

  2. I’d add that even though you can’t see much of R’s face because his head is turned, you still telegraphed with your lines what that expression is and it too adds to the emotional flavor of the moment, as well as with his body language.
