Amy and Tom – Progress

Yesterday I showed you the first sitting at a portrait I am working on.  The portrait is of one of my beautiful step daughters, Amy and her dad on the day of our wedding.

I was nervous about showing you the photograph I was working from in case my portrait looked nothing like it but a little further on …. here is the photograph.

As you can see, the photograph caught a wonderful moment (thank you Jason) but grandad’s nose kind of spoiled the composition.  🙂

The beauty of a drawing is that you can edit out the bits you don’t want and recreate your own composition exactly how you want it.

This is the progress after a second sitting and, although skin is much more difficult than fur for me, I am quite pleased so far.

Now I have to try and resisit the urge to overwork it.
