Well I’m late! Since I missed last week, here are two pencil sketch portraits I finished of my grandmother, Eris.
These are based on color slide photographs of her when she was about 18 I think. As I understand it, a novice photographer spotted her on the street and asked if he could photograph her for his portfolio since she was so lovely. It’s a wonderful thing to have color photographs of my grandmother at that age. Of course, pencil sketches don’t do them justice and I plan to do a painting or two of them in the near future.
