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.
This summer I’ve been doing a few commissions for people. Here is a portrait of the step-daughter of an old friend of my mom’s who we stayed with on vacation one weekend. This picture of hers was in the guest room and I thought it was really neat and would be a good picture to draw. The hat was a definite challenge, but I really like how it turned out!
