Portraits

My grandson, age 3, pencil.

Probably my favourite drawing not least because it essentially started my artistic journey.

Lea, another of my grandchildren, age 4, conte crayon.

I love this drawing, in particular the colour, pink is so appropriate for her delightfully joyous personality.

Another granddaughter, age 3, pencil.

I love the hat and her beautiful sparkly eyes. I had to use a photo as she lives in the USA. On the photo she had ice cream all around her mouth, needless to say I omitted that in the final portrait.

Jake, My youngest grandson, age 1, conte crayon.

It’s a lot of a cliché using pink for his sister and blue for him, but I see such a Zen quality about him, I feel the blue so emphasises that aspect of his personality.

Laura and Matthew, red chalk. These portraits were part of my solo exhibition entitled "Do what you love!"

These two young people were, and are still, madly enthusiastic about their sports, namely swimming and cycling.
