Sissy -- Portrait No. 3

8x10 graphite and white charcoal on Canson Mi-tientes paper. This was the hardest one. My angst is a joy killer and sometimes it can be an art destroyer. LOL! But, I chugged along…


Beautiful portrait. Cheerful, sweet lovely child. And don’t be too hard on your self. Good result comes with some pain, but isn’t it worth it?
Lovely work, really. Cheers up the viewers :slight_smile:

Thanks, Natasha. While I am in the throes of the art, I wonder if it is worth it, but when it is over and I spend some time away, I usually can say yes. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Thank you, Denise. :grinning:

Thank you, Christine. I do worry about getting the personality. I think I got hers.

This is beautiful. What a lovely girl. What a head of hair! Lots of curls, you did a great job!

Thanks, Lori. Unfortunately, I didn’t get good photos to do the portraits from, but I managed to make portraits that my client loves. The photos were with flash and rather fuzzy. That seems to be what most people want portraits from: old snapshots from way back when. LOL! I understand, but it makes it a little difficult.

Wow! Beautiful work!
There are so many things I see in this image that you have captured so well. Starting with the wrinkles in her shirt to the roundness of her cheeks and chin to the light in her eyes. Nicely done!
