T, A & L. Mum, Daughters’ kid & Daughter.

Here’s how the painting came to be. It’s squared up which is unusual for me.
The compositon is from two different different photos heavily cropped and rotated -15˚.
The palette was Zinc white, Colbalt blue (hue), Burnt Umber, Crimson Alizarin, and lots of Yellow Ochre.

The finished painting.

Some fun close ups. I’ve tried to keep the brushwork lively throughout.

    My favorite critics!
    It’s about 45x30cm.

    They do really like it.
    It was commissioned by the mum.

    Thanks again

    Nice painting – sorry to be a nerd – but are you using a Lensbaby for the close ups?

    How fun! I’ve just had to look lens baby up, so the lens used wasn’t one of them.
    My camera is a treasured LUMIX FZ50 and the lens is the cheapest macro I could get. I’m using it ‘badly’ so you can see the inside of the lens basically sticking it as near to the painting as possible and clicking. Most of these shots were made with same set up but less light:
