Sketchbook Challenge - Highly Prized - family

Another word from my list for Highly Prized - family.



(Click on photo for bigger image)

Title: Saturday Afternoon.

The Boss settled down on the sofa to read the New Scientist but his eyelids grew heavier and heavier.

Coloured pencil on textured pastel paper. 10 x 8"

I started this as a life drawing, but took a reference photo as well to work from later. I have to say, this portrait means more to me than a photograph ever could.

The diversity of your talents never ceases to amaze. What a charming capture of your Highly Prized. Warmth, love, contentment -- it all shines through.

Thank you. He was really cross when he woke up and saw what I was doing and he told me to throw it away - but I didn't. I carried on with it using the reference photo and finished it off the next time he fell on the sofa. Then I hid it!
