I have new art.
After taking a bit of a hiatus from painting and drawing, I decided I needed to get back to it with a new medium… or a somewhat new medium: watercolor pencils. I’m not really new to watercolor, though it’s never been my favorite. But somehow having the paints start out in pencil-form made it so much more fun.
This piece is actually a combination of watercolor and marker. Though it’s a little more spontaneous – and a lot less structured than I’m accustomed to – I think I liked it. Enough to do more!
I actually get quite a few requests for various artistic subjects, and some seem more doable than others. But this request was brought to me, ever so persistently, by a friend who just really appreciates the image of Our Lady with child. So here is my interpretation, hope you like!
BTW, don’t ask me if this is Irish Catholic Mary. Maybe it is.
