The Children of Ayscoghe Boucherett
This weekend I decided that I really wanted to draw something. I started to think about a painting I saw when I visited the Louvre, in Paris. The painting (as you can see on the left) was painted by Sir Thomas Lawrence c. 1799-1800. The title of the painting is
The Children of Ayscoghe Boucherett, and it features four young children with big rosy cheeks. When I saw the painting I thought it was adorable, and I enjoyed how soft and colorful the features of the face were.
Taking this image as my inspiration I drew the pictures of the woman below and then colored them digitally and with real make-up. It was fun to do, and I like that it turned out a bit like a hand colored black and white photograph!
If you are interested in checking out the work of Sir Thomas Lawrence, I would highly suggest it. The photograph I took of the above painting isn't the best, so I would Google it if you would like to check out the details. The boy in the red velvet outfit is my favorite part of the painting!
