Aunty Joan

Easter Sunday at my house means dinner at my Uncle Jerry and Aunt Joan's house.

I decided to take the opportunity to have my Aunt and Uncle sit for a portrait.

This is not the first time I drew my Uncle Jerry. A few years ago I did a nice watercolor of Uncle Jerry. I had not completed a drawing of my Aunty Joan. So this Easter was my chance. 

I did get a pretty good likeness here. I really like how I rendered her hand resting on the table.

I am struggling a little with the 18"x24" size to fit a drawing in. I think her head is a little big for her body in this drawing.

I do like how this came out.
