Through a mother's eyes........



Well, we've had a little bit of card making, and a little bit of horticulture so it's now time for a little bit of painting!!!! Now that I'm on the design team for Visible Image I am very much continuing from crafting journey too and I will be sharing some of those makes as and when time allows me to!

So today I'm sharing a painting that I've recently done of my youngest daughter Katie - I painted this from a photograph that was taken about 3 years ago when she was dressed up ready for her school ball - here is the photo that I had for reference....

I have called this painting "Through a mother's eyes".

Not having done much human portraiture I was really pleased with how this came out. Rendered in Daniel Smith watercolours, pastel pencils and black posca pen.

Thanks for stopping by,
