Tim Sketch

This is a line sketch of my grandson, Tim, reading while on a road trip. For this sketch I used a 2H graphite pencil on bristol board. I had to use the contrast on this drawing as it is so light it didn't photograph too well.

I have been wanting to paint this for quite some time so will transfer this drawing to watercolor paper and hope to begin that today. The drawing is based on a reference photo taken by my daughter.

Hi, Ann. I was having problems with leaving a comment but it's working now. I hadn't seen your painting of Sadie and I wanted to say how gorgeous it is! The skintones are lovely and so perfect and love the composition, too.

Atul, thank you. :)

Rhonda, thank you too for the comments on the painting of Sadie. IRL, she has the most beautiful skin and striking eyes.
