Asleep

My Instagram followers would have seen that I’ve been experimenting with portraits (to varying degrees of success). A friend of mine showed me a drawing that she started with pencils. I haven’t used pencils in a while now, so I thought I’d give them a try.

This sketch, I worked on in 15 to 30 minute bursts over a 2 week period. As a source image, I used a photograph that I took of Mauri and Maya a few months ago. It’s a very personal and lovely moment that I’m really happy to have been able to capture. I’m looking forward to doing more pieces like this.

I’m really feeling the pencils, so I’ll probably stick with them for a bit.
