In My Arms

In My Arms

I’m tremendously thankful to see improvement in my work with the frequent practice I’ve been getting fulfilling custom orders in the last several months. I made the little girl’s eyes my main center of interest with the kiss coming in a close second. I love the glowing qualities in the skin of the woman’s arm and how I took liberties with that edge as well as the back of her neck! I am also very pleased with how well simplifying the woman’s face went for me this time around. I would have liked to have lost the edge of the girl’s cheek in shadow more, but I couldn’t bring myself to do it. It felt like it would sacrifice her likeness too much. Maybe next time!


  1. Great work, Sarah! I love the light on the little girl's face. Beautiful!
