A quiet moment... w.i.p. day 1

This one I think is going to challenge me. Its a totally self indulgent piece.I love the lighting on the steps, the ripples on the water of the fountain, and the little boy is my son, so it goes without saying I love the subject too!
I've sketched out the composition with conte. The perspective of the steps I found challenging, hope I get it right as its so key to the composition. Looking forward to doing the water, it has some beautiful movement in it, just hope I have the skill to capture it!

Hi, I enjoyed looking at your blog. I wish I could be brave enough to paint people. There are no people in my paintings. Congratulations and keep at it!

Thankyou! I don't think of people differently to to any other subject, just draw what I see!
