Capturing the essence of somebody’s being when doing a portrait is like hitting the sweet spot. In this recent portrait drawing of father and daughter, I think I hit that sweet spot. It really shows her innocent energy and playfulness, and his love for his little princess. What she’s doing is slapping a sticker of Dora the Explorer on his forehead, just in case you’re wondering!
- I recently turned this photo of baby Victoria with her visiting grandparents from Portugal into a portrait drawing that was given as a surprise gift to them. Mario, the grandfather, is also a talented artist. I’m glad they liked it and have some meaningful artwork to display in their home back in Portugal!
