Cute Little Boy

Cute Little Boy – 2″ x 7″ Watercolor & Ink

I think this would make a cute bookmark.  It’s Susan’s (Surob at WetCanvas) grandson admiring a train.  I had a great time doing this and I normally don’t paint people.  Well, of course you know that.  I usually use my magic powers to remove all the people from reference photos before I paint them.  🙂

About Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol, the American pop artist, is probably best known for his silk screens of Campbell Soup and Marilyn Monroe. He was born as Andrew Warhola in Pittsburgh in 1928. His style borrowed from comic books and advertising; he wanted to remove the separation between commercial and fine art. His studio, the Factory, became a hub for the New York art scene. He was also a prolific filmmaker. He was shot three times in the chest in 1968 and narrowly escaped death. He died in 1987.

    he reminds me of my nephew who is always looking at trains. I like the color scheme and your hint of foliage in the background.

    It’s got a wonderful style! I like the dappled effect you gave the background. Beautiful colors and proportions. Looks like bookmark dimensions to me!

    I like this very much, Beth. I really like the texture and soft gradation of values. It allows for a strong sense of light.
