techno toddler, fashionista

My art table today, where I’m working on two miniatures for this year’s Sydney Royal.

They are acrylic on Hahnemuhle paper, postcard size to stay under the 100cm-square worked area limit.

I’m using the same colour palette for both paintings but chose to emphasise cool colours for the boy with a tonally heavy background to draw attention to his hands and his concentrated expression.

Looser brushstrokes and lighter hues evoke the enthusiasm of a little girl’s impromptu fashion parade in the second miniature.
