A lovely composition of a young girl and her father. I called this one rather obviously, Heads Together.

The unfinished appearance I think is quite charming.

Girl with a crown.


A natural pose here.

A close up from the finished portrait.

 

I think I captured the smile nicely.

It looks chaotic, but I know where all my tools are and I like to listen to a movie when I draw. 


(Les Miserables in this case!)

Amazingly luminous eyes.

A real little one here!


Simplified the original photograph, leaving out a busy background so that all eyes are on the baby.












Her lacy headband with a big blousey silk rose is a real feature.

Daddy's tattoos are symbolic, and an important part of this commission.


Curling a protruding finger to clean up the lines.

One of my favourites.


I lightened the shadows under her eyes and used soft cross hatching on her jacket rather than a photorealistic finish.

Mum snuggling her little ones ear.

A busy t-shirt deleted for this commission.


A half smile.


A close up of an orange, navy and white t-shirt.


Fleecy Baby

Great curls!

Sleepy head.

Back lit emphasising his hair.

Surfin' Granma.
