Finally got the courage to draw my 20 year old daughter who has Down Syndrome. I used 9x12 gray toned paper with black and white charcoal. Attached are the progress pictures. She did not like the first two backgrounds I was doing first so I made it all black lol
Any suggestions are appreciated!
OH Sonia - This is absolutely INCREDIBLE. I love the black background too. This touches my heart, especially since as you know - my sister has Down Syndrome too. I’m speechless.
Hi Sonia! I love this portrait. A beautiful portrait of a beautiful woman. I don’t have any suggestions to make. I wouldn’t change a thing.
Thanks for sharing.
Thank you so much! It means a lot
Thank you as always for your sweet words. Were it not because of your encouragement and being an inspiration, I have no idea if I would’ve ever attempted it. It was not as scary as I thought it would be.
Hugs to you and your sweet sister
I’m grateful that we have connected with each other.
I am also grateful
The black background makes her stand out more. You did a great job. Love it.
Thank you Denise!
Beautiful! You have created a lovely portrait of your daughter full of love. You should consider submitting this for a critique and tell your story to Matt.
Again, lovely drawing of your beautiful daughter.
I agree with Teri that you should submit this to Matt for the Members Minute.
She turned out beautifully Sonia! Well done! I like the black background.
That is so very sweet of you, thank you! Funny you said it because I did submit it for critique earlier today! I would love it if Matt would choose my portrait to critique for areas needing improvement as well as the areas that are ok
I love her charming smile and the glint in her eyes. You’ve created a lovely portrait!
Wow! What a sweet face! Nice work. I like the black background.
Thank you @mortonhouse!
