"Brand New" a work in progress
watercolor 10 x 14
Made some progress on this today. I think the precious-newborn side of this painting is winning out. Don't you think?
Now things will start moving a little more quickly on this painting. I wanted to be sure that I had the proportions right in the beginning, now I just need to strengthen the color and values and deal with the background.
I really am starting to like this painting. I think the hand in front of his face is so sweet. The reference photo is of my youngest son when he was about four days old. I took HUNDREDS (and I mean that literally) of photos of him in that first week, knowing that he'd outgrow that newborn stage so fast. And I'm really glad I did. :)
