Burgin Streetman has a blog called Vintage Childrens Books My Kid Loves, a wonderful collection of (imagine this) vintage childrens books.
She commissioned me to do a portrait of her son August. Over the next couple days I'll post the steps in the process, posting the final painting on Friday.

First off, Burgin liked my Red coat painting and she was interested in commissioning the portrait of August with that piece in mind.
I started with my traditional blue pencil under-drawing, just quickly figuring my proportions.
From there I simply finished the drawing.
