And Baby Makes Three…

“And Baby Makes Three” 11″ x 14″, Graphite and Colored Pencil on Watercolor Paper

Here is the latest family portrait! The outfits of the mother and daughter were adjusted to match the father’s uniform, creating the sense of a family unit. I particularly enjoyed drawing the daughter’s chubby cheeks.

Naturally, when you have a group sitting in a somewhat static pose and facing forward, the overall composition can be a bit inert. To compensate, the texture of clothing and background are more rough and the diagonal lines help develop a feel of movement.
