Painting Babies

"Pretty in Pink"
Oil on Canvas, 6" sq., c. Catherine Vines
When I started this painting I was concerned about my subject. She wasn't really chubby enough to have great wrinkles and shadows, just subtle coloring and generic "beautiful-baby-ness."
But the challenge grew as I realized the uniqueness of her expression. Not quite sure of what was happening, Not quite ready to cry. Just ... perturbed.
Perhaps the problem all along was that I wasn't looking closely enough.
