Portrait of Jonah

Being sick gave me some time to finish this portrait of our son, Jonah.  He's 5'7" and almost 14 years old now but this is my favorite photo of him. It made a fun drawing.

I should have taken the shadows darker but I'm still struggling with that.  I improvised on the anchor on the hat because it just didn't look right.  With each portrait, I learn a little more.

I just love the sweet look on his face.

  4. Amazing! What talent!
    I love your blog. We have nothing in common on the surface (I’m an atheist lesbian with 4 kids in public school.) but I find so much of what you write resonates with me. Thanks.

  9. Hello Kim,
    What a beautiful portrait and what a cute son! I've only done one portrait in my life and have intentionally stayed away from them but looking at your artwork has made me think about trying it again. I see you have a post on drawing portraits..I'll have to check that out.
    Maura :)
