baby painted portrait art

Gwenn Seemel
acrylic on panel
3 x 2 inches

Baby faces are unlike grownup ones. Some of the difference is in the proportions—the childish features of a small nose and bigger forehead, for example—but a lot of it is in the way that kids express themselves. They don’t know how to control their faces in the same way that adults do. It’s beautiful and powerful. For more about the making of this painting, check out this video.
