Watercolor on Arches CP 300gsm, 10" x 14".
i've started work on the series of april images, which she posed with her son.
april did several hand poses, and this is the first i have painted.
one of the poses has her hands overlapped, fingers interlaced and radiating. i tried to draw the image several times and failed, and i tried painting it on a very large format and failed. the image has a kind of intensity that is hard for me to realize.
