Ana - my latest pencil drawing

Ana - 9 x 11 graphite on mellotex paper. Drawn with the permission of the photographer.

Ana is the keeper of traditions in her village in Portugal.

Another amazed "wow"!!

And a little teasing: painting a young people with a face "as soft as a baby's bottom" should be really boring to you, shouldn't it?

Hee-Hee, actually I did one, Candace, just before this one, but wasn't real happy with it,

it's here: http://www.kacweb.com/cgibin/emAlbum...rk&img=11&tn=1

I consider it practice for this hat in this one.

And am currently working on something completely different than either.

Thanks Billi!

I see what you mean about Candace. Not to be critical but it doesn't have the same feel as either Ana or Rose. Maybe it has more to do with the subjects themselves than the actual drawing? Not to criticize Candace but she does not have the same openness as the other subjects you have drawn IMHO. Having said all that though I love Candace's eyes. There is something enchanting about them.

Ana is another amazing portrait. She has a zest for life that you, and the photographer, have both captured.

How long did this one take you?

Ana was about 45 hours of work. Pretty typical of my portraits 40-60 hours generally.

Thanks for your comments and interest!

not to make excuses, there are no excuses in art but Candace was a test for two types of paper and soft/young skin. I didn't feel either really worked.

Great drawing!

Today I finished my drawing of a waterfall, which looks okay, but when I scanned it it looked horrible, probable a combination of the scanner settings (not mine, so I can't adjust them) and the smooth, reflective paper I used. The compression when uploading it to Facebook and my website makes it even look more horrible.

Scanning or photographing drawings - particularly graphite - is definitely an art in itself. I generally have to take multiple photos/exposures and then tweak them slightly in photoshop to get them back to looking like the original.
