October 6, 2009

I used to draw and paint portraits quite often. It's one of the hardest things to do...regarding getting the likeness correct. It's been years since I have tried to just do a simple pencil portrait. So, I gave it a try today...only to find out that I am very rusty. I am about 75% pleased with this. The perfectionist I am would not let me just enjoy this. The mouth gave me a big problem, and it is much harder to draw children (in this case, my daughter) because of all the soft lines on their faces. So, I'm not totally happy, but it's a start on the right track. I'll keep this ball rolling. It feels good drawing again, though. Thank you again, Patrizzia...for getting me to do this.

Finished Size: about 5" x 7"

Love this... Her cheek and mouth are a bit off, but the rest is spot on. I can't wait to see what comes next.
