Thought I’d share this with you, following the post below where you saw the sketch.  As you can tell, I didn’t stick to the original sketch wholeheartedly.  Somewhere along the way, the looks of the child took another form, which I admit wasn’t really intentional.  I still might go back and do some editing – I’m not quite sure if I’m happy with the way the hand looks, but then again, I don’t want it to be too literal.  Well, we’ll see.

Primed my canvas with Naples Yellow and just sketched what I will paint now

All work and no play isn’t good for any of us.  So every now and then I get out my brushes and paints and try to open the creativity modes in my right hemisphere.  Today is one of those gray and rainy days – perfect for staying in, snuggling up with a hot cup of decaf chai, and seeing if the colors in my mind translate well on canvas.  I’m not sure where I’ll take this sketch… back to the studio!
