This is a portrait of my one-and-a-half-year-old Niece, Lily. A simple design incorporating actual lilies in the background as part of a framing device. This was done in pencil and airbrush on gesso’d 30×40” illustration board. Once the basic colours have been airbrushed in, I use colour pencil to add highlights and other details and textures. Some final colour paint spattering was done around the edges to give some more texture and atmosphere to the background.
