This is my absolutely favourite theme to paint. I love capturing the tender connections. I may always paint this... it's part of my story, I am a mom and it's been the biggest role in my life and I've loved it, the good with the hard times. I can't imagine another way.
I didn't mean to finish painting the Mother first but she captivated me and she lead the way and I love where she's taking me. My canvas is big (24"x24") and it means proportions can be challenging and it requires lots of gorgeous paint. As I was painting her, her face kept increasing in size... which in turn left the other faces, way too small.
So I had to increase them and rework their proportions.
Work in Progress
But so far I'm loving their closeness and connectivity.
I can't wait to get back to them today... I think I have a plan on how I will finish them.
