Mother and Child

An interesting theme set by Gothic Arches this week. I chose to hand draw my image on my arch using watercolour pencils and finishing the detail with a fineline pen. I hand wrote the wording, cut out and chalked the edges and applied to the background. Hope you like the end result, it took a while to get a good composition and the facial features working as I wanted them to!
