Sketches for a modern Hodegetria (Madonna and child)
This began with a random little sketch that I watercolored. Something about it charmed me, but the proportions of the figures were off. I've been resketching the figures and measuring and looking at pictures on line of mothers with children and Madonnas with the Christ Child (not THAT Madonna- though she and her children show up in the Google search). This will become a icon like painting. I already have a fabulous frame for it.
