I want to show you this work in progress. Thank you for the great comments about this drawing.
Abby wanted to be on the picture too so there she is with her favorite stuffed dog.
I think I am going to paint the background Terra cotta or rusty red.
I have problems with red if I don't mix it with another color. It doesn't cover very good (the same with brown) I was trying to find a brand that covers but I didn't have any luck yet.
A close up. I didn't finish painting the dress yet. The face is almost done. It needs a crown (golden)
I was inspired by Renaissance's artist Parmigianino "Madonna with the Long Neck"
My Madonna is different. Her eyes are open and baby Jesus is not in the picture. Also the style is different.
