This is a project that I started about 2 years ago. I was originally going to make it rather intense: drawn from a difficult angle, strong contrast, a large finished product. Unfortunately, my other projects began to take over my life and I never got around to this one. It is also a little too close to my previous show winner, and I didn't want to be too limited in my subject matter so early in my "career".
So I tucked the sketches away, only to stumble upon them again two months ago. I was feeling ready to try again, but I also wanted to simplify the subject—at least for now.
So here it is! My first watercolor figure... that still looks like my colored pencil technique instead of painting. Oh well, I still felt very brave and I'm satisfied overall with the result. It's also nice to be trained as a graphic designer, because I can change the color of the shirt (original is pink) to fit the gender of the expected child.
Can be found at my etsy shop in even more colors!
