Little Portrait in Progress

I am loving all of the color in this little portrait. (Happily, my client agreed to allow me to share it here!) There is something about the cool hues of the subject's skin tones and sweater being in front of the warmer colors of the chair slats and wall behind that just make this piece sing (to me, anyway)! And then there are his vibrant eyes, lips, and... oh, that hair!

(There is a graphite pencil portrait of this boy in the works also. I'll post it soon.)
