Smile Finished Work--Allanah & Gary's hands

Thanks to those who expressed concern re: our weather--between floods, power outages (several), fallen trees, our internet service being off and on and down for 14 hours, and then WC! being off line--we are okay!

Hi, everyone! I've finished my first skin and hand painting. I have offered it to Andy LaVallee for Allanah's baby box and he has graciously accepted it. He is the proud Grandpa!

Comments welcome.

Lyn

Approx. 7" x 7", Arches 140 lb W&N FUB, Winsor Violet, Permanent Rose, and Burnt Sienna and a hint of Burnt Umber

Lyn I'm glad to hear that everything is OK in your part of the world even though the weather and computer problems are frustrating.

Love your finished painting of Allanah & Gary's hands. It really turned out marvellous.

Pam, thanks for the concern; we're just under flood watch now.

I used Burnt Sienna for Gary's, along w/a little Permanent Rose, and Burnt Umber for some of rough skin. For Allanah, I used Permanent Rose--tried some yellow as suggested by Madmum, but it didn't work for me--so lifted that and kept layering Permanent Rose and lifting, etc., etc., etc. Use Permanent Pink for Gary's fingernails. FUB and Violet for background and shadows.

Clasje, JoAnn--thanks for comments and concern.


(((Andy))), my Grand man!

Kate, Annetta, thank you for commenting, and Andy is always doing nice things for his clients (above the call of duty and pay) and so I thought I'd try to do something nice for him I am pleased enough with the painting, to feel that he will enjoy it.

Lyn

Char, you must have popped in while I was posting

We are just having severe flooding tonight--more rain and possible storms due tomorrow. One town about 20 miles south of us had 13 inches in 24 hours.

Thanks for looking and commenting!

Lyn

Lyn, this is a fine painting. Hard to believe it is your first effort at skin tones. Well done! And how kind of you to give it to Andy for the baby. Hope you continue to be safe from the bad weather in your neck of the woods.
