    1st artrage portrait

    A portrait of my grandson, good practice (much needed by me) in using the knife for blending. I was quite tempted to discard it several times on the way but kept at it.

    Amazing! and great tribute your grandson. May I suggest sharpening some of those edges with shadows and such.

    shechat,
    This wonderful portrait speaks a thousand affectionate words. What
    could be more endearing than this expression of love of your grandson.
    It's absolutely lovely and so well painted!

    You did great instead! Wonderful, and I'm sure quite recognizable, portrait!
    As for the blending, I'd suggest not to overwork, to use the hard type at higher pressures to lead properly the strokes, then the wet one with appropriate fine settings and then, the hard type again at lower pressures. You may finally blur if You wish.
    You may however use also high thinned oils (pressure at least mid to keep the hue vivid) either on the painting itself (try wet and dry settings, as You prefer) or on an additional layer as a glaze.
    Finally the airspray is the ultimate tool should You like a very polished surface look.
    Panta rei (everything flows)!
