Hope

Hope
11x14 inches
Coloured pencils on matte board
This is the commission I mentioned in my last post and I was fortunate that this was presented sooner than expected and happily Hope's Mum and Dad gave their blessings for this to be posted. There weren't actually any bubbles in the reference photo, but it seemed like the perfect addition to her little outstretched hand. What a lovely commission to do too, from the beautiful colour of her hair, to the interesting details in her dress, and of course it helps when you are given a good quality reference photo to work with.

Your last 3 pieces/posts are just so beautiful Karen. I particularly like the texture in this last piece. It shows through in such a subtle way, and reminds me that it is a piece of ART,made by human hands, not just a snapshot printed by a machine.

Lovely just!

Very nicely done. It is such a lovely soft picture that totally suits the subject. The bubbles were a very nice touch. You will have to thank your commission for letting you share it with us.
