Jacob is about 20 months old in this picture. For the face I have used a cross hatching technique to preserve the look of transparent skin that babies have. I have used Prismacolor pencils and Stonehenge paper on the rough side, should have used the smooth side I think. I have also cross hatched the clothes but used a brush to blend the colours together. I am considering putting in a background. He was laying in his pushchair when I took the original photo and the interior was dark grey. The scan has bleached the colours in the face the original has more contrast and shading in the skin tones. Size is 21x16cm.
