I had a chance to do this portrait of a mom and her two little ones for Mother's Day! The photo I worked with is below. I used a little artistic liscense, in adjusting the size of the boy on the left. I wanted the mom to be a little taller than the kids. It just seemed to work better visually. Working with the shadows on their faces was fun!
|My granddaughter Pheadra wanted the Cat with flowers design! Meow!|
|My other granddaughter Bailey wanted the cat/flower face too! It was her birthday party!|
|Other guests at the party!|
Below is an insightful talk by my favorite illustration teacher and children's book artist Will Terry. Good advice about time management for artists!
