Mother and Child




Acrylic on Panel - 8 x 8 inches

One more go at it. I'm including some steps along the way, not just to show the process, but I met with a painter over the weekend who was filming his painting process and discovered that some of this work seemed better at some stage along the way other than the finished product.

Even the the lighting is wrong in the three photos I took to show the process, I think I prefer the looser brushwork. Hmmm.

Mother and Child

Acrylic on Panel - 8 x 8 inches

First in a series, for a challenge sent by my father. The photo was difficult to work from because it was back lit and most of the faces were in shadow, but a challenge isn't supposed to be easy.
