Lately, I have been drawing familiar faces with the intention to fine tune my ability to capture the essence of that person. My desire is for the persons' spirit to show thru in the drawing. I noticed a facebook friend of mine had posted a picture of her granddaughter, Lucy, who she fondly called Sweet Lucy. The photo caught my attention right away, I was captivated by her photo from the get go. She had a light, innocent, and free spirited look about her. I loved how she confidenlty wore the little red polk-a-dotted hat. The next thing I knew I had my graphite pencil and my journal in my hand and I was eagerly off to attempt this feat of bringing a drawing of her to life. I can honestly say I am pleased with the outcome. I belive her innocense yet free spirit shows thru in this drawing? What do you think?
