Quickie Fernando Botero style painting

See, this right here is why you'll never catch me painting realistic portraits. It just ain't gonna happen. I was pretty stoked to copy a photo of my mom and little brother and Botero the crud out of it for a workshop on the artist I was almost able to teach. For those of you who don't know, Fernando Botero is famous for his stylized figures which he blows up and then accentuates their volume. It's too bad the workshop had to be cancelled because this is one fantastic demo.

My little fam-damily...
You done been Botero-ed!

Awful. Just so bad. But I can't look away...



I think my figures could have been bigger...
