On My Easel

My first portrait of my daughter

I am so delighted to have finished this picture of my gorgeous little girl Leila. It is one I have been working on for quite some time in-between commissions and home schooling my twins due to lockdown. It really captures her spirit and our love of summer. I don't think any of us can wait for summer to arrive and hopefully have a little more normality in our lives.

I completed this one mainly using Caran D'ache Luminance Pencils, including their new portrait range which I'm absolutely loving! I normally only work on wild animals and pets, but I have have now developed a love for drawing children too! My next personal project will definitely be of her twin brother.
