A re-post of a friend’s 3-year old child, one that I couldn’t resist doing for them.
Sometimes I try a different style, and do it quickly to see where it leads. Starting with the earlier idea of light being ethereal, this was done on rough paper using crayon to pull out the highlights before applying watercolor– a wax resist technique. I envisioned it through a water-soaked lens as the lights played on reflections. Eventually I gave it as a wedding gift for friends.
I like doing portraits. Here are a handful of black and white drawings from the past year or two of interesting people I’ve run across.
Contact me if you would like something done for your friends or family.
