Priscilla ~ Christmas Joy in July

With Christmas just a few months away, we thought it'd be fun to celebrate early by sharing some holiday sketches and drawings!   
Wanting to portray joy and love in this drawing, the one area I concentrated on most was the mother's cheeks and eyelashes, conveying pure delight in holding her baby close.

Here, finished digitally with pastels and dry media brushes.

  4. Thank you for your kind words and comments. It was a great feeling to take a rough, loose sketch, and finish it off digitally without tightening it up too much. Something i've had to work at for a number of years. =0)

  5. It is such a loving and real drawing - just the way a Mom holds a baby up and the baby giggles.
