Young Boy in Shadow

Young Boy in Shadow - oil on canvas - 40cm x 30cm

Another version of an earlier post. This time it was started in the new course today and finished at home. I've left the image larger than usual to give you more detail. The conditions under which I took the pic were not ideal but I felt it was more important to post it than to fuss with it.
I prefer to start class participants with a profile painting as I believe it eases everyone into the painting process more gently.
Also, the background is totally neutral and the focus is on the child.
