Re: Bath time for Baby

Beautiful painting, Betsy, although I admit I was expecting a lamb or calf or possibly a kid of the goat variety. Your strokework is simply amazing! While you are looking for resources on how to do it we are looking and learning from what you do!

Re: Bath time for Baby

Bhavana thank you! WIP's yes they are and hate to see it die in front of everyone...

Vivian thanks I have been baking all today and then going to the movies with my younger daughter...so probably an update tomorrow.

Mary thanks I'm glad that you are trying it out. Keep at it though, maybe something easy like a red and green pepper still life.

Donna thanks...yeah i thought that i would cross the species lines and try out humans. I always liked painting portraits of children so I thought ... what the hell....

thanks for the encouragement guys

Re: Bath time for Baby

Thanks Ginger I'm glad you like it.
I did fiddle a bit more with this played with the far arm with a few more lighter values so it still looks attached. I added some more mamma butt ( green dress), down below what i already have. I makes the apron look more apronish.

Re: Bath time for Baby

Very nice, Betsy!
I especially find that cloth on the mom's lap and her skirt beautifully painted.
The baby's face is adorable!

Re: Bath time for Baby

Derek thank you I had fun!

Cindy thank you so much that seem to be the part that came together pretty quickly.

Mike thanks for looking in

Anne I have been searching for something for a while that grabbed my attention and this technique seems to be it...for awhile anyways.

this is the finish with a few minor adjustments adding a little more green skirt behind the apron, lightened up a few things the greens on her dress, alittle more light blues on background things to carry it around the painting. Brightened up the baby a bit.
thanks again C&C



and a crop

Re: Bath time for Baby

Nice finish on this one, Betsy! I like where mama's hand tucks around baby. Very believable but simply stated.

Nice finish!

Re: Bath time for Baby - FINISHED

Your colors are so nice here - and that baby's sweet smile & eyes are the star! I like how the cross hatching gives it an overall soft feeling.

A tender scene, but with such energy. It is a pleasure to look at!

Re: Bath time for Baby - FINISHED

Deborah thank you! I wondered if it was too noticeable...I wanted the baby to pop in front and decided to leave it from the 1st stage.

Kathryn I especially liked how the apron worked out, I was trying to get the material to appear more.... utilitarian or rough. And hopefully appear white, without being white.

Celeste thank you for looking in yeah i kept most of the strokes on the baby pretty fine and short, it seemed to soften it up.

Gillian thanks! thats what i love about this technique it gives energy no matter the subject.
