Portrait of a Mother

8x10 pencil portrait created from one of the only photographs taken of my friend and client's mother who died when my client was a six-year old girl.  As with some of my other restoration type work the reference photo was a trick to work with.

  1. This is very nice, Erica! It reminds me so much of my grandmother when she was young. The high cheek bones, the clothes, brings back memories of her.

    I also find restoration work challenging, but you did a beautiful job here.
