Mother with Child

Mother with Child

The lady pictured here contacted me and asked if I would be interested in painting a portrait of her pregnant, and I thought, “What a great idea!” And she was able to provide me with such wonderful photos of her with dramatic rim lighting. When painting her face, I used a popular painter’s device of juxtaposing a vibrant peach/orange against a cool purple/blue. These are basically complementary colors, and I think this is my most successful use of this combination thus far!
