Portrait of Jonah January 21, 2011 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.
