Watercolor and ink on watercolor paper - 5" x 7" (NFS)
So earlier in the week I adopted a little baby girl. A latin cutie named Samira.
I'm kidding of course!
But if I did I sure hope she'd look like this!
My former coworker gave birth last year and brought her bundle of joy to work for all of us to see shortly thereafter.
Dark hair everywhere, deep brown eyes, and those chubby cheeks. Just adorable!!
Surprisingly, Samira was so well behaved. Very calm and quiet and she would smile a lot. A really wonderful temperament for a baby.
A couple months back the same coworker (who takes photography classes) had duplicate photos of her daughter spread along her desk. I asked if I could have one to try and do a portrait. I didn't get around to starting/finishing it until now! Ughh!
The challenge was that the photograph was black and white. Rather than guess the proper skin tone, exact eye color, etc., I went ahead and did the portrait in black ink with bright pink watercolor washes to keep the background interesting.
The last time I asked my former coworker how Samira was doing she told me her daughter put on weight and is becoming extremely grumpy! LOL....I guess they don't stay cute and sweet forever!
