Mom Artwork

I started another new project. It makes me happy to have a lot of different pieces going at the same time. This one is something I tried before, a colored pencil rendition of a small photograph of my mom when she was about 22 years old. It must have been taken right around the time she got married to my dad.

I started with my contour line drawing directly from my image as usual.

And here is my progress so far. My support is an 11 x 14 Pastelbord panel. The color is sand.


  1. Hi. Thanks for posting this. It is great to see how you work from the photo in stages.

  2. Just found your blog through the FMP page and wow! you have some very nice work. I enjoy seeing the WIP but do you post the finished piece? I'd love to see more of your work. And thanks for the tips on cameras and printing.
