Classic Beauty

My uncle commissioned me to draw his beautiful wife, Aunt Johnnie. 🌺. The black & white reference photo was from some 30 years ago. I like to draw from color photos because I can see tones better, but since the photo was a good, crisp closeup I was able to do a decent likeness.CEA45607-E5C8-4F40-9526-4E14E2211A2A

Trump & Hillary

So, I decided to make my little artistic contribution to the 2016 presidential election madness featuring the two most unpopular candidates ever (so I hear). Trump’s hair gave me fits. It looked so fake as I was drawing, but then I remembered that it looks fake in real life too 🤔 so I just quit working on it. 👀…. and … Hillary, well, she just ought to thank me for not drawing all of what I saw on her photo. (You’re welcome, girl) 😌.

Anyway, it’s all good (and needed) practice. 😎
