Almost finished I think. Cotton canvas 80 * 60 cm. Started with acrylic and finished with oil paint from Rembrandt using pure linseed oil as medium.

It appears that the child's upper arm is 'off', perhaps too narrow and not properly connected to the shoulder and chest area. Waiting to see your follow-up to this.

Dana, see what you mean, its the hair that is in front of the arm, to make that cleaner I should color it more yellowish .... Walter

Ah, yes, I looked up the original. It's the baby's hair that comes in front of the arm! Lightening it up would do it especially the hair that is closest to the viewer.

Have seen the original painting and will rework this one with improvements. Walter

Working all over the painting. Photograph taken with a crappy smartphone a better picture later. Probably let it dry first now. Walter
