My portrait of Olivia won 2nd Place in the Mixed Media Category and I was also surprised to win "The People's Choice Award".

Here's my completed drawing of Olivia.  She's been signed, sprayed with fixative, and is now ready to be delivered to her mom to give to her dad Christmas morning.

Olivia WIP 2

Here's an update on my commission piece, Olivia.  Her face is about 95% finished.  I want to add another layer of graphite to smooth out the tone and to really bring out the contrast.  I will be 100% finished with her face for my next update, then I can work on the bib and clothes.  Once the clothes is finished, she'll be ready to mat, frame, and wrap.

Olivia WIP

Here's a work in progress image of my newest portrait I'm working on.  This is Olivia, she's 11 x 14 graphite on Strathmore Bristol smooth paper.  

I was asked by Olivia's mom to draw her, this is going to be a Christmas present for her dad.  More to come soon!
