Drawing Diary 7 March 2019 : J & C Portrait

This portrait is from a photo taken by my wife Julia of her two youngest children. They’re a fine looking pair and I worked hard to do them both justice. As always, I’m not entirely happy with the result. I’ve never been entirely happy with any drawing. Isn’t that always the way?

What I do like about the picture, though, (and this comes from the original photograph) are the contrasts within it. It was fun to do, although the fur collar drove me a little loopy at the time.
