I had the privilege once again to be commissioned by my former neighbors to draw their third child. This one is my favourite. She was a pleasure to draw.
My grandparents commissioned me to draw a portrait of my lovely mother. Her scarf took a long time to work on, but I think it really completes the picture. I also like the strong contrast of values for this particular portrait. It was quite interesting drawing a family member. I find it’s a nice thing to have. I am sure my grandparents will enjoy it.
Every week I go downtown to a coffee shop, listen to music on their open mic night, spend time with friends, and also work on my drawings in this art-filled environment. I love it so much, and it has been a great testimony to be able to show my God-given talent to perfect strangers. It is also a wonderful place for me to receive more commissions. I have made friends with many of the workers there, and one of the baristas commissioned me to do this sweet picture. Looks like he was a little inspired after seeing the drawing I did for my friend Tyler a couple of weeks ago. I enjoyed drawing this picture.
My good friend and fellow art major, Tyler, commissioned me to draw this really neat picture of his mom and her dad. I thought it was really sweet, and I had so much fun drawing it. I’m always excited to draw portraits that are a little different, or from another angle. This particular drawing ended up being a sort of portrait and landscape duo.
A couple of years ago, my neighbors commissioned me to draw their little girl, see here. Now, she has a little baby brother, and they wanted me to draw him as well. So, there’s a little pair of them. Both of the children have such smiling faces. 🙂
Back when I took Drawing I class at North Greenville, for our last project we had to produce three different Vanitas Still-lifes. In the drawings, each object is a symbol and represents something which the drawing talks about as a whole. It was slightly challenging to find objects that gave meaning to the message I tried to convey. A little research did help to give me ideas, and allowed me to bring further meaning into my work than I had anticipated. More work from Drawing I, II, and III will be posted once I have completed the finishing touches.
