With this one an the Na poo leon pic you have really captured him.

Still giggling about my "angel" nephew.

I used some photo reference for this one - not something I often do but it can be very helpful for sorting out what the proportions and shapes of a person's face really are – especially as none of the family will actually stay still when I try to draw them from life.

Just found you Julie - what a refreshing change to view pictures for their worth rather than words. Lovely blog - I'll be back.

This is great Julie - I'd love to see this worked up into a 'big picture'

Hello Shirl. Glad you like the blog. There are some great mainly pictures blogs in my links.
Katherine, I wish I could devote the time to some bigger pieces - but I'm grateful to be able to squeeze in what I can around paid work and motherhood. In a couple of years - maybe.
