Felt nocturnal today so I decided to draw another portrait. Normally nurses do not get too emotionally attached to patients but my mum couldn’t help herself this time. This lady (of course I can’t mention names for patient confidential reasons then again I don’t even know her name 😛 ) is now in her late 80s currently fighting a critical illness. Doctors are fearing the worst yet she still has a smile on her face, helps that she’s Christian too. Her faith is probably the reason why my mum and her get on so well; Long story short she gave my mum and I a beautiful Rosary and blessed us both so I had to do something in return. Her daughter showed my mum a certain image of her in her early years and it’s as if my mum FINALLY GETS WHAT IMAGES I LIKE 😀 Now I think this must have been taken either in the 40s or 50s, I SWEAR EVERYONE THEN HAD STYLE!!!!!!!!!
This is a portrait of my sis in Christ Tanyaradzwa; she was determined to get me to draw her. I guess her persistence paid off, I like the finish however the drawing highlights the fact that I need to have more patience when shading hair, but you can’t blame me it’s not like I was ready to do every BRAID! In all this took me 5 hours not bad for an A4 drawing me thinks…. Once again the photo does this portrait no justice! Should really use my Nikon but I cannot be bothered to pause and take pics that often so my phone will have to do 😛
Felt lazy, I always had this image of Estelle; one of the best photos I feel she’s ever taken and the symmetry of her face……………..just had to draw it!
Still rusty with my shading and I still need work on drawing lips BUT in all I can see a definite improvement! Only way is up BABY! LMAO and I need to work on my photography, but with all art it looks better in person.
