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.

I decided to add to my portfolio so I grabbed a photo of beautiful Shayla. 🌺
I thought I’d revisit this familiar face. The first real portrait I ever drew, 3 years ago, was from a photo of Obama back in the early days of the presidency. It’s always fun to compare old drawings to recent ones.
It’s so funny – people asked me, “Why’d you choose him to draw?” When I did a recent drawing of Trump (see previous post)’ people asked me, “Why’d you draw him?” Haha! Can’t please everyone… ‘ain’t even trying to’.
Humanity … its beauty, love, sorrow, joy, and all things associated with life as we experience it; that is what I try to capture in my drawings… that is why I drew ‘him‘.
Peace and Love to you.💛
