This is a portrait commissioned as a present for the children’s parents. The client, their grandmother, wanted to surprise her daughter with the drawing. The drawing is drawn with graphite pencils on paper 20 x 30 cm in size. The client was very happy with the result. I will be mounting the drawing before posting it off. The pose was very natural in the photo and I wanted to capture that in the drawing. I worked mostly with Staedtler pencils HB, 2B, 5B and 6B for the darkest areas. I usually start with an outline sketch in a HB pencil capturing the likeness of the people in the portrait, moving on to shading with softer pencils after. I hope you all like it 🙂
I am now working on a new painting. It is a beautiful portrait of father and daughter. I will be posting the result later on this week.
