A Short Nap

My son was napping on the couch. I captured the moment with this sketch in gouache and pastel.

    This has beautiful shading. The cours in the hair and shirt and arms are so subtle but contribute so much to the restful mood. A wonderful picture:)

    Wonderful colors Sarah, I LOVE the touches of blue in his hair, they “are magic!). The juxtaposition of his arms and leg keep my eyes IN the painting (so interesting for me,) and the curve of his hand around his head nail that this is the focal point (along with contrasting blue in his hair (complementary color and unifying.)

    Wowzers! Good job! I learned just from looking – thank you!!
