#6 Jeremy

So far I have drawn family members for my project- which is always easier than drawing someone who you do not know. Today I challenged myself to draw my friend Constance’s son from an old photograph when he was a baby. Roman (my husband) said that I “absolutely” captured him, yet I can never be so sure. Often times when I do not know the subject I will use a grid to draw the initial outline. This is a tool that artists use to make sure that all the features are placed where they are supposed to be. Placing a feature even a millimeter off can sometimes make a portrait unrecognizable. Since I have a limited amount of time to draw each portrait, I have to rely on my eye to make sure that the features are placed correctly. We will have to wait and see what Constance thinks…
