    Non-horse Drawing

    This is my latest:

    This is a portrait of two friends who are having their 25th wedding anniversary party this weekend, from their wedding day.

    It's been a really hard week and drawing was not on my list of things to do. We had a horse killed two Sundays ago-got out and was hit on the highway. I wouldn't wish that experience on anyone. Plus my uncle's 10 year anniversary of his death was last Monday so that was hard too. I'm working on a portrait of him next to give to my grandmother.
    Like I mentioned before, drawing wasn't on my priority list at all. But once I started on this one it just kinda flowed. And I've got another portrait to work on after my uncle-a graduation gift for a friend (party's next weekend) so I'll definitely be busy.
    Thanks for reading.

    Bravo!!!! WAY better than any human portrait I could ever hope to do. I think it is wonderful of you to do these drawings for your friends and family. I often do pet/horse portraits for my friends and family for Birthdays and Christmas. It's just so rewarding.

    Thanks Joe. And you can do it. I couldn't even draw an eye properly just a year ago. But I made it a goal, did a bunch of reading, a bunch of sketches, lotsa failures...but it's coming along.

    Liz~I like doing portraits for occasions, especially when they aren't expecting it. With the anniversary one, I asked their son to smuggle some pictures out of the house for me of their wedding day. He kept on forgetting about it til last Friday. I wasn't sure I'd be able to finish it in a week but I couldn't sleep on Saturday so I had a late night of drawing.

    Striking portraits, midwestgirl! They have a very spontaneous, expressive and natural feel. Great gifts.

    Thanks toadflax.
    I wish i'd had more time to spend on them. I hate feeling rushed.

    I like the looser style, in fact. It's got a mature, painterly feel.
