Madonna and Child

Matthew Alderman. Madonna and Child. Ink, 2010. Private Collection, Michigan.

A gentle little 4" x 6" inch ink illustration of Our Lady and Our Lord. The client gave me very few specifics besides his love of the Renaissance painter Lippo Lippi's Madonna with Two Angels, and the work grew from there, with additional hints of Martin Travers and Botticelli.

I've recently finally gotten around to starting a website for my church furnishing and illustration work, which can be found here, and an extensive collection of my drawings is now available on flickr.com as well.

Beautiful and ornate. The one thing I notice though is that Christ's head is a little small in proportion to His body.

Hmm... Babies are not my strong suit, so a tip/observation like that is helpful. Thank you.
