Sarah


Here is a drawing I've done of my daughter, Sarah. It's graphite (2B mechanical pencil to be exact) on cartridge paper. It was based on a photograph that was taken a year or so ago; she's now got her front teeth back! I'm going to send this to my mother (who is just about to go off on a month's cruise around the Caribbean, lucky thing!) for her birthday. Now my wife wants me to do another one with teeth!

looking at the drawing of your daughter takes me back to her age when i didn't have my front teeth.....this is great what a treasure for her to have when she's an old un:-)

I think the secret to a good portrait is capturing character - and I think you have done it here. Your mother will love this. I hope you will post the "with teeth" portrait here too

You guys are too kind--it's not that good! But thank you anyway, I do appreciate it.
