The subject matter here reflects what I like to execute best – textures and lights and darks.
This particular subject matter presents a variety of textures along with a composition with a strong lower left to upper right axis that pulls the viewer into the drawing and up to the toddler’s face.
Within the image the textures include: the middle aged, veined hands; the soft, chubby skin in both the hands and face of the toddler and his silky smooth hair; textures of a soft sock, denim bibbed pants, and stripped shirt on the toddler; and the wool sweater and corduroy pants of the adult holding the toddler.
Additional to this composition is a variety of lights and darks that isolate and focus on the human elements depicted in the work.
