Week 28: Mary Cassatt

Week 28: Mary Cassatt

In the style of Mary Cassatt (I hope) or at least what I think hers might look like with contemporary clothing. I noticed she has windows in the background in several of her paintings, so I thought I’d reference a photo we took of three grandkids at my birthday dinner. (She is one of my favorite painters!!) I love her soft touch and the children she painted. One can tell she loved them. I tried to get that soft touch with the background and the hair especially. The bold patterns on these dresses are not like what Mary’s paintings show, but I don’t think she’d change them if she were painting now. I had fun using all the layers on brushes.
