In between jobs I'm trying to tidy and organize my studio... not an easy task!
I came across some old portraits I did of Lil and Sky. I have always loved drawing faces and figures and when I was at college I used to draw portraits from photographs for monies to supplement my grant.
When I went back to University when Lil was one to do a degree, I did a project on portraiture and Lil and here is some of the work...
This seems so old now, isn't it funny how you change and evolve as a creative person!
Sky asleep in our bed,
Lil in her fave hat!
Sky's shoes on the first day of school...
...and my red dancing shoes... they don't see much action these days!
I remember promising myself that I would paint a portrait of the kids every year as they grew up, but time hasn't allowed and I've never done a portrait of Sonny. I found a little sketch and ideas book with Portraits written on the front and a half started drawing of Skyla. I think I'm going to make that project 57 & 58, to finish Sky's portrait and to start one of Sonny...wish me luck!
