I've been wanting to do a painting of a mother and child for Mothers Day for a long time.
I started with a simple sketch
Then I tweaked it a little and transferred the idea to canvas
Then the details
This is the first one. I'm going to do the exercise of painting it twice maybe from another angle. Whichever one wins is going up for sale as a painting and discounted prints! So check the store next week!
This is a pencil study of a portrait I will be painting of my mother as a young woman. Step 1 of healing process started.
