In this installment of my Art Series posts I wanted to share with you all a graphite portrait drawing I did of my grandmother as a gift to my mother on her birthday this past April!
I saw a picture of my grandmother’s huge family from when she was a little younger :)… I think maybe 16 or 17 years old (she just had her 74th birthday this past May), and thought how beautiful she was. I immediately knew I wanted to draw her. With my mom’s birthday coming up, I figured it would be a meaningful gift! Here she is:
Drawing a portrait of someone you know and someone you love and respect so much is difficult because you want it to be just perfect. I’m a perfectionist as it is!! He he. You just want to make sure it does look like them so you need to get certain features just right. This one is still hard for me… it really does look like her and I am quite proud of it… but there are things I’d like to fix. Maybe I’ll do another one. :)
