I often enjoy drawing and painting newborns and babies, especially my very own grandchildren. Although this is one of my main artistic focuses, I have recently been contemplating what the most effective medium for capturing the softness and innocence of a child is. Is it ink, watercolor, graphite, a combination of a few, or something else completely?
I have experimented with each of these and am still working on finding the best medium. I feel that watercolor is a great way to create soft colors combinations, with the perfect amount of pigment and water. On that note, I am beginning to think about experimenting with oil pastels, as they are wonderful tools for blending.
Do you have any thoughts? If, so please leave a comment on this post! I would love to hear from each and every one of you.
