Grandmother portrait


"How are you with drawing old people?" my customer asked. She wanted a portrait of her recently deceased grandmother to send out on family Christmas cards. This was a small 5x7 pencil portrait that I completed quickly in order to get it there in time for Christmas.


This is the photo that the customer sent to me. She specifically requested that I include the brooch.

The more I drew this portrait, the more I admired the grandmother's kind eyes and smile. As I drew the portrait I wished that it would bring back warm memories to her family.
