1/26/10 Benjamin Patillo - FINISHED

This is the finished portrait of Benjamin Patillo. I used a picture by Tracy Allen Croysdale - a professional photographer. Her pictures of little "Banjo" were the inspiration for this painting. I really gravitated to the strong colors and intense look on Benjamin's face. These were taken this summer when he had just turned one. I am very proud of the delicacy I used on his face and the thick fast strokes I used in the background. This is one of my favorite portraits that I've ever done.
