Revisiting the past

B - the pout

Quite awhile back I did a drawing of my youngest daughter, captured when she was about 3, and obviously didn't want her photo taken at the time. The only photo I have of this is a tiny wallet sized one so the detail is not good. But I wanted to try this again. Even now the drawing isn't large that I've done, around 8 x 5, but I so love that expression. I may attempt it in watercolour if I can transfer it to another sheet, as right now its in a sketchbook.

I did a quick sketch of another photo of my daughter, this time with her own daughter who is about a year or so younger at the time. Not quite the same, but an interesting contrast.

Will be interesting to see this - I want to have a go at watercolour portraits too.

Such a lovely pout, it is. These are great and portraits should be super.

I love watercolour portraits but its hit or miss with me if they turn out ok.

Thanks Jo, isn't it priceless?
