Mother and Child

So I am still learning how to be an avid blogger, and I am embarrassed I haven't put anything up lately. So here is a piece I just finished for the Nature and Nurture show at the BYU HFAC. It starts this Friday.

I wanted to capture a peaceful moment between a mother and baby, and from what I understand, it can be one of the best feelings. This time I included my sketch to show you all.
I made a few edits such as redesigning the mother's hair for compositional issues and fixing her hand to make it aesthetically pleasing.

I really enjoyed painting this and playing with textures as well as pattern. I used acrylic paint and I love the way it looks. I hope you enjoy!
