I’ve been working on this painting since August 17th. Been painting on and off. It’s a tribute to all the paramedics out there who are looking after us. Thank you for all your hard work.
Painting was done with acrylic paints. My first time using this medium and I had a bit of trouble getting the baby’s skin tone right. It was a good challenge. I used the following photo as a reference:
I first saw this photo approximately 8 months ago and was touched by the sight of it. I have a friend on deviantart who asked why I haven’t been posting any artwork up recently. That was when I remembered this photo. I do not paint often (I prefer colored pencils), but I felt that in order to capture the color, paint would be the best way to go.
I really enjoyed using this medium and will definitely use it again in the future.
