Mary

Mary

Another portrait I recently finished. I chose this pose because of the single light source.  I painted it in a grasaille first and when dry I  glazed a light flesh tone over the face of both woman and baby. I like the dramatic lighting on this and of course I love the subject matter.  It's my sister in law, Mary and her then baby, Anna, from a photo taken 35 yrs ago! Anna was a chubby baby, her dad called her "Chunky Noodle".
