A3 pencil drawing – Portrait of Ivy and Anna

36 hours to completion, this beautiful A3 pencil drawing of Anna and Ivy was commissioned by Susan Klopper for her sister’s birthday present. It is the first person only commission I have done in many years. Because I have less experience with people, I interacted a lot with Susan and her mom during the project.

When we chose the photos to use, I only noticed afterwards that the girls were wearing the same necklace. Faces are always challenging because the shading has to be so lightly applied. I frequently resorted to rubbing a few shavings over the page with a finger then lifting it off with a putty eraser.
