Newborn metrics for girl

I created newborn metrics for my daughter Urszula.

A name Urszula comes from latin from word ursa which means she-bear. Thats why in the picture I painted bear-ballerina.

In the same style I added features of character typical for woman with the name Urszula: responsible, ambitious, independent, dynamic, happy and outgoing.

All made by watercolours on paper sized A4 and framed.

Dream toy

In the picture below you can see a boy laying on the pillow and kissing his favourite toy – locomotive.

To be honest I have never had a toy like this, probably because i’m a girl. I remember my brother had but he didn’t want to share with me his toys. But I really wanted to draw a classic steam locomotive. The shape of locomotive always seems to me very interesting.

I used oil pastels to draw this. I have to confess when I drawing I put next layer of pastel on the existing one. Sometimes I have a few layers and the next layer doesn’t want to look good. In this situation I use a razor blade to scratch some layers and put proper colour. This is my little secret.
