Friday Figures- DIY Family Portraits

One of the sweetest things you can do with your dad, swapping stories while sketching his portrait. My dad was a dear to sit for me. He's a retired math professor was getting over a cold, somewhat amused and a very good sport about it.

My sister agreed to pose if she could consult her Samsung Galaxy at the same time.

These two drawings came from last week’s visit with family in California. Something about intently staring at your family while drawing them brings you all that much closer together. So either beware or dive right in.

I wouldn’t have traded it for anything.

Happy Friday.

    What a rich and sweet time and you’ve captured memories forever.

  3. I love the accumulated gestural look of the drawing of your father. It’s so interesting to look at a drawing that seems to have grown organically. I admire your restraint in the areas of white on his jacket.

    Love your drawing of your Dad, I’ve tried drawing people close to me, but have hesitated incase it comes out poorly and they would be offended by how they look. Maybe I should try again!
