Day 175 - Hanging out with Ben

My son Ben aka the Patient bought a Playstation 4 and two games because his doctor told him he needed to use his thumb more now that he has a regular cast. He holds still making him a good subject to draw. These were drawn directly with a Noodler Creaper in my Stillman and Birn Alpha. I really like the Alpha. Like it so much bought two more today in different sizes. The game is similar to the  Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. The graphics are pretty incredible and require a lot of concentration which keeps him from wiggling as usual. 

I would fix those two unfortunately positioned spikes in the hair but my paint is packed for the drive to key west in the morning.  
Colors - flesh is a touch of alizarin and Quin red watered down a lot, hair is ultramarine blue and burnt umber, greys are  cobalt and raw sienna, pants cerulean and cobalt, and the sweater is piemonite in the darks olive green and green apatite. 
Bear one of his two pit bulls has given up til the game is over and do what Bear does best. Sleeping. Grey on the bed is cobalt and raw sienna. Dog is painted with raw sienna and piemonite. The shadows are ultramarine blue and burnt umber. 

Happy Boxing Day.!! Thanks for looking!!
