Aasim

What was your inspiration? This is my friends grandson, Aasim. His dad took the great pic and then had photoshopped it with a yellow background. That changed his skin tones and created this flat yellow background. So ... I used a yellowing tinted batik cloth and this is layers and layers and layers of colored pencils. It was fun to experiment with a pic that was in a completely different colorway! Not sure if I'll do background stitching or not ... considering using a multi-colored yellow/orange thread for that ... but not sure!
