“He Was His Mother’s Favorite”
Oil pastel, watercolor, graphite, gouache on muslin 5 x 6 inches
I am so loving doing these little paintings using Lynne’s http://lynnehoppe.blogspot.com/ technique! I feel like its magic the way a face sort of appears on the page, and I love doing the eyes. This is a great learning experience for larger paintings too. I feel like each one I do I learn something new about painting the human face – and the expressions just amaze me since I don’t know beforehand what they are going to say!
