aw ta Anna :)
Really beautiful, but I agree with Anna and like the more colourful one more.Hope you are well.
thanks Jenny – think there is a indescribable amount of wonder when a bub is born and just wanted to use the whole rainbow to describe it :)
baby art, comes to us all (eventually, when they are asleep and you sit there watching them…)I’ve always been afraid to scan oil pastel (because of messing up the glass)you’ll love these in years to come. i have some hidden somewhere with baby photos…
I just clean the glass with paper towel and a mild detergent if I have to :)
Hell of a sketch Elle, very impressive, babies are notoriously hard to work from in terms of a portrait. The depth of tonal range, especially round the eyes , and mouth, gives this a real feeling of solidity
Kathe Kollwitz did the best baby portraits! People think drawing babies is kitche but I would argue that that indescribable innocence, vulnerability, plush vitality is real primal important stuff – for creation and destruction is what art is all about
you are so good!!!! yes difficult subject,!!!!! brilliant..!!
aw thanks Shyle :)
a baby to draw..lucky you and what a drawing!…
