Trying to catch up with these! I actually did this one a while ago and forgot to ever post it. I think it’s because it didn’t turn out as well as I had hoped.
This is my friend, Stacey. We’ve been friends since junior year chemistry class in high school. A few weeks ago, we took a vacation together with family, partners, and friends and I meant to draw her portrait from life at that time but chickened out. So when I got home, I found an old photo I taken of her in college and drew from that.
Stacey, I feel like this doesn’t really do you justice. I wish I had gone in and gotten my sketch book when we were sitting around in rockers on that back side porch- you looked so beautiful! And then I would have been able to draw your pregnant belly, too.
