On Adorable Nieces

Freehand copy of my favorite photo of my brand new niece.

I am generally very bad with shadows, so the very-still life of the photo helped.Β  The blanket especially took me back to the draped fabric we did in charcoal in Drawing I (as in my one and only drawing class).Β  I was really starting to miss the charcoal by the time I finished the blanket.Β  That “additive” process was much more forgiving than ink.Β  I did, however, appreciate the cleanliness of the ink.
