Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. Mario, I attempted to follow your process while creating this image with the exception of the background color. I paid close attention to the drafting of the image as I wanted a strong foundation. I then applied the monochromatic glaze on the figures but not the background. I may have made my biggest mistake there but I was uncertain of what I wanted to do. I did not want a background of images and things, perhaps sky and I still have an opportunity to do that as the image is not completed. .I used the colors from my pallet that have worked for me because I do not have opera red, but intend to get it soon. I liked the bronze color of Rachel because she has darker skin that the baby (did I say this was taken from a photo and I will try to add it to the project page) .In the end (almost) I struggled with the hair and I was concerned about the baby's hair, so sparse but, I am now liking the end results.
