Ok, I just sat down after a busy day. I will try to start some sketching. Please have patience . It's going to take some time to get even some of these done. Drawing people is really hard, but I am finding more and more that I actually like it! So, that's good. But, getting the correct likeness, well . . .that's another story. So, it may not be the exact likeness, but what we want is the feeling of love and trust.
Hang in there , I gotta get my rusty hand going on these@!
Ok, I did a lot of pencil sketching last night. About 20 minutes per portrait. They are by no means finished, but if we like them, then I can paint them. Some of them I showed in the full size and in the cropped size. Let me know which you prefer.
