On my previous post "Draw the Curtains or Draw a Line" I showed the beginnings of a painting/drawing I was doing of my sleeping sister and baby. This is the photo that I was using as reference.
I wanted to share the progress that it has made this week so far. Here is where I added a circle to frame their heads and begun adding flower details. Her hair went from flat black to highlights and lowlights forming a three dimensional head.
I work organically and make decisions along the way when I do art. I think it is more fun that way! Take note of the blue under the baby's arm on the picture above. I didn't like the way that it made the baby seem to be floating away from the mother. I decided to add black on top of the blue to make it into hair. That just seemed more fitting and brought them together more.
I am excited about filling in the circle with designs and adding more texture to the blue background. I am putting this on hold for a little bit to work on an exciting project that is more pressing, but when I am finished, I will make sure to post pictures of the final project!
