With this commission I faced the challenge to depict pale skin hues of the little boy without getting a bleach and unsaturated pastel drawing. Therefor I placed hatched strokes of complementary colours that would cancel themselves into a grey blur, thus creating the pale look at a certain distance (coverging into the right impression like a pointillistic painting) but creating a world of wonder with great colours nearby.
