This is what I am currently working on, a portrait of baby Ezra... who is not really a baby any more. This is definitely a portrait of a little boy.
I had the idea to do a leafy foresty background and then really wanted to paint it on an interesting piece of wood. So I went along to the Bristol Wood Recycling Project and found this which sort of has its own ready made frame. I think its suits the portrait really well...
Below you can see the progression so far, although I didn't think to take a photo before any paint had been applied.
