I don’t often paint boys. My nephews have some paintings, and a few special requests have been done, but I don’t often paint boys.
Maybe it’s because I am a girl I identify with them more? Maybe it’s because I have three girls and they inspire paintings almost daily?
One of my goals this year was to paint more boys – and so far we are in July and I haven’t managed to paint a single one.
And boys need original art works too!
So I sat down last week decided to start simply and went to one of my go to boy characters – a black haired boy with an indian like head band.
The differences between painting boys + girls isn’t huge, but there is always a worry in my mind about making the boys too feminine! I worry are their lips too pouty?
I have another one planned for painting this weekend and I think I will do more! I have really enjoyed this process!
Have a great weekend.
