An excercise in realism


I took a photo of Jo and Jessica, because, Jess, looked so cute, and I thought, she would make the perfect tot in my yummy mummy series. But, I just had an impulse to paint it how it is, before, I escape with her in my imagination. Do I like what I've painted? Well, I like how I have been able to capture her looking like she can't sit still, and I like how I've captured Jo. Her personality is so spontaneous and warm, I think it shows, and she clearly adores motherhood. I had fun.

I'm humbled, thanks all !!I am trying to be brave and stick solely to my contemporary pieces. So, dont get me wrong it does heaps for my confidence, getting comments about my realism pieces, But a very wise friend has told me to follow my heart. I suppose I will know when Ive touched base when people comment on my yummy mummies.
