Back to the Studio
Well after not being overly busy in the studio lately due to all sorts of other things in life... I finally have been working on several new pieces. This is a portrait of two sweet little girls I recently did.. a surprise birthday gift for the mom by the family. I really enjoy doing portraits although they can be a bit stressful at times.. people are one of my favorite subjects to create artwork from. This was a pencil drawing on bristol paper (had just gotten a new pad of 2 sided recycled paper that has a smooth and slightly more toothy side - i accidently started on the smooth side and blending was a bit of a challenge! but it turned out ok in the end) a few accents of charcoal and light watercolor wash finished it off.
