Mrs Douglas passed away last winter and left a gap in the lives of my cousin and his partner. She loved to snuggle among the down pillows and comforter to watch the birds outside her window. I only knew her for a short while, but she was an elegant little lady.
Her coloring was perfect for creating a charcoal sketch using a toned paper using black and white charcoal. It is good practice in observing and translating values.
Special Portrait #2 will be completed soon (I hope).
