Child Portrait – “Sweet Baby Blues”

Even though all the drawings for the upcoming show (Wet Noses, Cute Poses) are all done – there is no time to rest!

Here is the completed drawing for the Too Cute Photo Contest that I held on my Facebook page. The photo with the most votes won. It was a tight race and there were many adorable pictures!

The winning photo was turned into a hand-drawn 8″ x 10″ work of art. Originally I stated that the drawing would be black and white. But those eyes were so pretty, I decided a touch of blue would help bring them to life and stay true to the original photo. The skin was built up slowly by smudging graphite pencil with a swab of cotton and erasing the highlights. The result is a delicate face with glistening rich eyes.
