Sketch of Mom w/Photo



A pencil sketch of my mother done from a photo taken at her 89th birthday party. The shape of the left eye is just a tad off but I did get her smile right!
Here is the photo I used. I blurred the background figures with Photoshop. As you can see there are areas that are off but I think I caught the essence of her.

89!? Wow, she looks so much younger than that! And I love the smile, the portrait looks so natural Ann, well done

Thanks for commenting, Teresa. I edited the post and added the photo so you can see what a young 89 she truly is.
