Ode to Parenthood Mixed Media

 This painting is from a tutorial in a Kaleidoscope Course hosted by Tamara Laporte. Her reference for this piece is a section of a Gustav Klimt's painting "The Three Ages of Woman," which shows "Mother and Child."

I wasn't familiar with this painting, but I do love the way this artist uses gold throughout his work. "The Woman in Gold," is a fabulous movie, staring Helen Mirren.

I used Jane Davenport watercolors, along with assorted colored pencils and a few pens, on Canson 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper. I used my light pad to transfer the tracing to my watercolor paper.

I enjoyed working on this challenging piece.
