Feb 22 Sweet baby memory in watercolor
Here’s Another recent baby painting I enjoyed so much. I literally smiled the whole time while I was painting him. Can anyone possibly not smile back at such a sweet innocent eyes?
Since babies have such pure transparent skin, regardless of skin color, watercolor is the perfect medium to paint with. Just like the original photo, I the painting is airy and clean. I gave some fuzzy accents to the hair and doll sweater with colored pencils. I often use other supplementary mediums such as colored pencils or pens for accents.
This client showed me so many beautiful studio photos of her baby. Because I rely on photographs for the source of my art more often than not, I appreciate photographers’ creativity. I’m posting a few of the backup photos I received, to give you some creative ideas for baby photos.
