My sister-in-law passed away yesterday. She was a wonderful woman and will be sorely missed. This portrait does not resemble her. Tomorrow’s will be better.
I’m told that the eyes and the mouth are not right.
As I recall, this was in Southern California. Perhaps Anaheim. My process, at the time I drew this, was to sketch the landscape in pencil and then use a very fine point ink pen to outline and shade appropriately.
This man was very heavy. I think he was much heavier in person than in my drawing. I don’t know why I wasn’t able to be more faithful to life.
Relaxing after the family visit.
