Beautiful sketch. I love the way you've done frinch and the light bits in her eyes:)
Beautiful, Steve!& I soooooo know about trying not to be a pushy parent. The line between being encouraging and being pushy is indeed a thin, diaphanous little thing.Sometimes I look back and wonder if I haven't been too remote because I've been trying not to be too overbearing.(Sigh.)Parenthood is not for the weak!
The hair strands across the face say a lot---of course in my imagination..they just add so much to the beautifully done impish eyes... Your comment on the turkey photos made me roar!!! Nothing makes a 73 year old artist's day like a good laugh......
Beautiful! I like the way you've done the shadow by the nose.I came over from Freebird, from where she tagged you. Glad to pop by as I have really enjoyed exploring your pictures. Wonderful stuff!
Another gem of a drawing.
Who COULD resist those limpid eyes. Your work is so amazing I could just stare into those eyes for hours. I LOVE your site.
When I was giving birth to my Sons the nurse said 'Push' and didn't tell me to stop so I'm still pushing. I push their imagination, adventure and passions. IMO there isn't enough pushing of these qualities these days, it's all qualify, compete and compare...Tut!You push on, it will mean the world to her that you shared such exciting times together.GREAT eyes!
Beaaaauuuutiful! Such life in those eyes! I really enjoy the subtle cross hatching around them. You've managed to add texture while keeping her so youthful. This is something I struggle with.
Ohh Stephen...she is soooo precious! This was drawn beautifully with a huge dose of love! Thank you so much for your kind words on my blog, too. Encouragement from a real pro like you makes me feel good. Could you kindly share with me the kind of pens you use? Thank you!Lisa
Wow! The eyes are fantastic, but I think the hair is brilliant. I always struggle with hair. Very cool!BTW, buy her lots of art supplies. That's what my folks did and it worked.
Sorry..that was me above who deleted...What a loving capture of childlike innocence and wonder...What a joy it must be to watch her interest in art :)
Exquisite eyes! Such a wonderful expression.
Wow. Stephen. You really blow me away. I've been blogging for about two and a half years now. In all that time I've been visiting hundreds of drawing blogs. And, yet, some of my very favourite pieces are on this blog. In such a short amount of time, you've really blown me away with your work. KEEP ON GOING. Please.
me gusta mucho tu trabajo. gracias
Amazing eyes ... and skillfully done. (Giving my daughter's eyes a thoughtful look though it would have been better before she hit her teens, nowadays its more of a permanent sneer than wide-eyed wonder) :-)
