I tried to go for a more “artistic” color scheme in Annette’s portrait. Because she has such bright red hair, I used blues in her face, but then it didn’t really work well for the light areas and I ended up using some yellows. Yellows didn’t really work in Daniel’s baby face, so I think in the end I used every color I had trying to get something that doesn’t look completely wrong.
Annette is a really bubbly, happy, excited kind of girl, which is really not apparent at all in this portrait. We had our babies 3 months apart, so we will force our sons to be friends. They don’t really have a choice in the matter is what we tell them.
