Two brothers in yellow. The youngest boy could not walk yet. The children have the softness and roundness of their forms. Studying and painting the dimensions of a boy’s shape is an excellent way to learn how and what to paint. Perspectives are always tricky because there are no rules. Each person has a different appearance. Each side of a person’s body is shaped differently. Learning the softness of forms is essential for art. Once a painter can accomplish this, the viewers can better engage with the artwork. The concepts can be abstract to the viewer at first. In this painting I surround the boys in an abstract background of lightness.
