Painting from life

Hey there!

Recently, I started doing daily drawings since it is much more feasible when most of my “free” time comes in short, unpredictable amounts. I have long wanted to practice drawing portraits from life so I started drawing my newborn Grant since he sleeps next to me when I draw and stays relatively still. Also, I don’t exactly have models lining up on my doorstep.

I am pleased with the outcome, I have been trying to learn shapes, shadows, and proportions of the human face and painting is a level harder than drawing since you are adding the element of colour.

Anyways, baby is crying so that is all for now!!

Some paintings are more challenging than others and this was one of those paintings for me. However, after changing the direction and adding the verse I am happy with the outcome. Also, I always love the chance to practice my fonts. 🙂
