I did this portrait in 2009 from a photograph that showed up all the detail that I needed, much to my relief. Children’s portraits are notoriously difficult to do as their young faces lack most of the features that an adult one has. The resulting drawings can easily turn into a disappointingly nondescript, two-dimensional cartoon style portrait if I’m not careful. Which I always am. This one was comparatively easy and very enjoyable to do, I’d love them all to be like that!
