These portraits are some of my earlier drawings and entirely graphite. Each drawing is 6″ square and all three were framed together.
The reference photos were small and very dark to work with but I also had a number of other close-up pictures of each child.
Wouldn’t it be a beautiful to frame a series of close-up drawings of your children every five years as they grow up? There is so much wonder at the world in the first years, then it’s all fun-and-games, then the sass, then the independence and then finally the parents are smart again.
