Fruits of a really late night

Question: What do you get when there is
  • One wide awake ,new mom lying in bed at night having had
  • One strong cup of coffee the evening and also
  • One tall glass of cold coffee a little later in the evening, next to
  • One milk fed ,sleeping baby,lying on her left side with
  • One ball pen in her right hand and holding
  • One writing pad in the other hand, at an almost impossible angle,in a room lit by
  • One dim bedside lamp

Answer: This
and this

which are the new mom's first attempts at sketching her baby, and also her first attempts at sketching with a pen. 

The new mom thought that they were not-so-bad, till daylight and a in-a-hurry-to-get-to-work-husband disagreed . Still ,for better or worse, the new mom wishes to show them to the world.

@ MRC, Extremely sorry for the delayed reply...

Answering your two queries...

1. Are you using oil based or water based glass colours?

I have used solvent based colours in the one u saw. I sometimes use water based too but I like solvent based more coz of its rich dark colour when it dries.

2. How do you avoid bubbles while painting with a brush?

I use paint in small quantities... the brush should not be reused several times...and use a pin immediately to pop it up :)

Maybe there's some other way but this what I know. If you come up with something else, do let me know.

ps: Btw, thats not a bad sketch at all...too good from what you explained esp wen u consider the 'angle' :)
