Miriam’s Art is pleased to release her Baby Face pastel portrait. It is with great pleasure that I paint a baby’s face. Most of the painting was done at a time of calm. Enjoy!
The pink of the lips of the child attract the attention immediately. They are pouting as is often seen in a baby. The pink contrasts well with the white highlight and the skin tones of the chin and nose.
This painting was done at a time of relative calm. Or is it that it calms me greatly to paint a child. I am a grandmother after all! It was a joy!
The lips were the most challenging since they can’t be red as with lipstick. They have to be flesh pink. I believe I’ve got them right. I may work on it a bit more. The lips are proving to be difficult.
This is a 12×18″ painting framed. The painting itself is 5.5 x 9″. Please see my website under Shop, Portfolio and scroll down to Shop Now to purchase. It can be found at www.miriamsart.com.
