I have been inspired by Teri at Teri's Painted Daisies to do start a portrait drawing series. This is my first drawing of the series. I don't have a number of portraits that I want to do like Teri who is trying for 50. I just want to use this exercise as a way of improving my skill.
This little fellow is Judah, my Great Great Nephew. Is is a little doll in my eyes and I am the typical old auntie that just wants to pinch his cheeks. Il try to resist but it is difficult. The small picture is what I used for a model as you can't get a 9 month old wiggle worm to sit still long enough for me to sketch. I am very s l o w. When I finish a drawing I always look at it and see what I should have done. I think one eye looks a little unfinished. Hmmm Definitely room for improvement...onward an upward.
