oil painting of Ryan by John Dyess

This painting is of my grandson Ryan ,who is the younger brother of Devon ,whose portrait was shown in the previous post. I shot many photographs to be used as reference and after about three sessions I selected this pose. I selected this pose because I liked the light and shadow ,Ryan’s expression and this pose  of him sitting in a rocking chair.

    It is like looking at Jan verMer working now in the 21st Century. What amazing lighting to go with that expression.
