Against the Wall

As you can see from this painting and others I'm not one to paint smiling faces a lot. I tend to paint more serious expressions, even on children. I believe I get more depth in the face with a serious expression. It all comes down to the eyes. Once I get that feeling and emotion in the eyes, that's when I know that the painting is finished. Every face that I paint or draw begins and ends with the eyes.
This is a mixed media piece. Liquitex Acrylic paint and Conte Pastel pencils on canvas. 18 x 18".
