Baby Sister Portrait

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 Mother

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.

Grand Family Time

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.

Father and Daughter

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 Portrait with Detail

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!
