The whites are a touch pinker than IRL, and some of the Biederlack blanket's texture doesn't come through. I took a photo of my hand holding someone else's for reference, and one of the blanket in question for the color and nap, but the placement of design and folds is from my head.
I like the boldness of enamels and the slightly slower working time as opposed to acrylics, and mixing colors with oils is intimidating. The crayons were just Crayolas. I did this in layers, improvising to see what I'd get. The aim was to try to get away from the stricter realism of my drawings.
The arms feel awkward, but their placement and that of the hands is what I had in mind as is the overall image.
As I was painting the red coat sleeve I made several slips, and to cover them I widened the sleeve. As a result, my hand looks like that of a child, which is not inappropriate to the image.
