This was a commission I did of a mother and her child. I tried to portray the child’s personality as she looked in wonder at what was outside the window. Her gesture gives life to the painting. I have complimentary colors. The inside has warm reds and oranges while the view outside is in shades of blue, giving an interesting contrast. The faces are a pale pink, with the only shading where shadows would appear. I paint what I see. Sometimes dark hair has a bluish tint to it when certain light falls on it.
