Blond Toddler, pastel, 13x14",©Kim Werfel
The portrait is painted on a light blue Art Spectrum paper mounted on mat board. The parents may plan to make giclee prints, and if so, I plan to get one too. I like American Art Editions in Apex for my prints - great people to work with and excellent quality.
Her pink dress and white collar with her embroidered initials are lovely with her pale porcelain skin. I had to change the background color from the photo, as it was a dark orange and didn't work with her coloring or the dress. To help her come forward, I added cool darks with a touch of lavender behind her.
These make great gifts that become heirloom pieces handed down through generations. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss creating a your own pastel portrait.
