A first attempt to draw/paint someone I know...(not grand kids)...Done from a recent photo she sent. She is my first cousin and this does not really capture her essence; I think I got a little of him, her dear husband. It was done in ink and no erasing and in this case I wish I had had the option to erase and try again. I can just try the whole thing again some other time. But even so all that said I like it. I used some watercolors and luminescent paints after the ink.

  1. You are a brave soul. One of these days I will start with ink instead of pencil. Gives me chills just thinking of that but it must feel like you've done a great accomplishment. Nicely done.

    1. It was mostly a challenge because I know the people and feared what THEY would think, but so far they haven't seemed to have seen it (it's on facebook too). LOL

    Fun drawing and its pretty good for not being able to erase. you should try it some time with pencil..Just for the fun of it. Keep up the good work.

  4. I like your shading, Lynn. These are certainlyore elusive and difficult than your other sketches, but I think you're 'drawn' to draw people. Practice makes better and best :-)

    Love

    1. Well it's people this month. We'll see what's next; or perhaps I will continue. I never know where the muse takes me.
