Another Portrait

This of my daughter. I took the photo and then looked at that to render the portrait. Mixed media - pencil with watercolor washes.



  • That is really lovely.

  • I agree, it's beautiful (both the drawing and the child!)

  • Thanks people! I appreciate the encouragement.

  • She is such a sweet girl, my Charlotte - she will be 10 next month. I am so thankful for her. God has really blessed me and my husband in giving us the opportunity to know her.

  • Lovely work, Rose. I think the portrait separates the men from the boys (excuse the gender!) in art work. It has to be pretty near 100% or the work is spoiled. Meanwhile the rest of us (mere boys)can but doodle.

    P/s If you become famous, I hope you will still find time to keep your blog going.

  • Wow, Rose. You have portrayed her so well, it's almost like she is speaking to us! Thanks for sharing the gift God has given you with us.

  • Thanks again for all the encouragement.

    GNSH: famous? What? are you saying I am not already famous? I thought I was the most reasonable blogger in the world? That has to bring me some fame? ;~)

  • Anton,
    Yes I saw those comments. I am sorry I did not reply to them. oops. Thanks for the link. I tried to weatch one of the tutorials, but my filter bloked it. I will watch them, but I have to go through some rigamaroll to unblock them, so I will do it another day.

    If you want to discuss that, feel free to email me - my email address in available through my profile. :~)
