This piece is called ‘Blue Eyes’ for obvious reasons. It’s a combination of faces and of things I loved from about 3 different babies. If it happens to look like a baby you know, this is purely coincidence, I promise. I wanted the challenge of painting a child’s face. There are many challenges to this! It’s very different than an adult’s face. The lines must be soft and the lighting has to be soft as well (but not flat) as not to make the baby look odd, or older. This one took me about three weeks of off and on. I really took my time and did a lot of stepping back to double-check my work. This baby has an impish grin on its face and it makes me want to hug this little one!
