Problem arm

Hi ,

Just a question about ther position of the left arm on the tree. Unfortunately, cannot re-shoot this child. Any suggestions. Should I change the position, redraw the arm? Any suggestions?

Alicia if this is a commission, depending on how much freedom you have you might like to either repaint the arm closer to the body, or have it hold something or remove the tree entirely and place the child leaning against an old stone fence where the arm can hidden behind his body.

He looks as though his stance is saying that he is not that comfortable in that pose which may be a problem if you paint it per context of photo.

I would have liked to see him lean up against the tree with his foot on the tree holding an object which my son did alot when he was young.

Hope this helps.
