Over the years, I have painted many portraits of my daughter, Maria. This one below is probably one of my favourites. Actually, as I am writing out this post I am getting an idea for the next post, which could be a presentation of all of the portraits together. Well, for now, here is a simple Silhouette painting of a Mother and Daughter sharing a special moment.
Following my current theme of pink skies, I was inspired to paint this little painting today (50x50cm). It was a pure joy to create the two figures walking in the woods. Hmm, I wonder what they are talking about and what their story is? I have found certain success in using soft pink and lemon as the backdrop colours. I feel it lightens and creates a dramatic contrast to the heavy black foreground.
