Pinterest to Painting

Soul Food - Pinterest to Painting

Pin It

One of my favourite classes in Soul Food was Pinterest to Painting.  The idea was to actually DO something with all those inspiration images we save on Pinterest and combine some of them into 1 painting.

I used 3 images from Pinterest:

I admit that I did use tracedown paper for the adult figure.  You can see on the photo below, where I have drawn over it and adjusted the line of the shoulder.

But the other things, I drew in and painted without any tracing.

I'm disappointed with the way her skin tones turned out.  It's not water colour paper but I wanted to use watercolours, so I put a layer of gesso down, and it was as if the colour was sinking beneath the gesso to the paper below it.  Really odd.  That's why she's a bit blotchy.

But I am over the moon with the baby's face and scarf, and the sun.  All in all, I learnt some lessons and am pleased with the overall result.
