Yesterday I worked more on Robert's facial features. These are pretty close to accurate as far as shape and placement. I am painting very thinly as I work through each area, scraping and repainting as needed. The background is just there and isn't finished. This is what happens when I don't have a clear idea as to what I would like in the background area.
A little background on Sharon and Robert which is important in this painting. They are two of the happiest people I know. Every photo I have of Sharon shows her smiling. Robert is always joking and is gifted when it comes to telling a story. That is what I would like to convey in this painting, their outlook on life and how much I enjoy and love them.
