Family portrait , mutual aid and fire

A Family portrait

The support and mutual aid on a family and in a country

This family portrait was a wedding gift. Virginia, a friend of the family, could not be present on Alice and Oliver’s wedding, so she surprised them with this beautiful bellysketcher’s family portrait. As I’ve been told, they loved it and got emotional.

I’m also emocional, but for very sad reasons. It’s impossible not to mention the tragedy that occurred in Portugal last Saturday.

newborn baby – a time of contrasts

Newborn baby – A time of coherent contradiction

Bright colors on a soft pallet – the intensity of a newborn mother

Barbara, the author of mammateenblog ,once a newborn mum, is a mother of three, but the portrait was not about any kid in particular but about her motherhood in general.

I tried to represent all the love, tenderness and connection between a mum and her newborn baby. The colors are soft and pastel but we can’t ignore the bright yellow tones that exist during this time. Everything looks intense, doesn´t it? How was it for you?
