I couldn’t show this until now because it was a gift…
I had created a similar painting a few years ago for little Ross on his first Christmas, so now it was baby Francesca’s turn.
It was a simple process. I created the layout for the 16′ x 20′ canvas in Illustrator with a vector frame from istockphoto. I printed it out on 4 sheets of paper, taped them together, and traced the design onto the canvas with carbon paper. Once the pencil outline was on the canvas, I simply ‘colored’ it in with paint.
Merry first Christmas, Francesca!
