Mother & Child
Phineus was born in November, and I attempted a Mother and Child painting in late December. Priscilla was actually doing a drawing, and Phin was sitting in his little seat. Every time she picked him up, I tried to paint him. I liked the start, which was painted in one shot, but I couldn't get back to it. A few days later, I tried to work on it again, but over did it. I'll think about this one for a while, and I'll try to tone it down and finish it. For me, if I can have a solid chunk of time to paint it in one shot, or alla prima, I am usually happier with the results.
