A commissioned painting for twin baby girls! YAY!
I always begin with a very detailed drawing. Good layout and composition is the foundation I need to begin any work. I can eventually stray from it but that is always where I begin. I find a good spread from the book that I can manipulate to accommodate our girls, playing and swinging with our wild things. Then it's time to add the details that I envision the twins will enjoy in the years to come... the dog, squirrel, cat bird and boat. I pump up the color to match the room, which is turquoise and yellow.
So there you have it!
"Addy and Eve Go Wild" With Congrats to the Lemmers!
A tribute to this 50 year old classic and a painting the girls will probably fight over when they go away to college! Maybe I shoulda split it down the middle... ?
