In a previous post from October 7th I showed my progress with my very first portrait of my grandfather. Just as a beginning place, I wanted to remind you of the progress from beginning to end.
My completed piece was a much better portrait than I began with.
Since drawing has always been a passion of mine, it startles me now that I allowed myself to have such difficulty learning to draw a portrait. As a girl, they just scared me so bad, so I stuck with still life, and architecture.
Now, on to Daddy….
Oh, just as with Papa, when I began Dads portrait I miscalculated and came out with this…. (don’t judge me….)
but, I caught a deep breathe and started over…….
this is what I have so far……
I would really like to get all the kinks out before I start on Mom.
Practice, practice, practice……
