Lovely Hannah

Here's the finished piece that you saw in progress last night. What's new: additional carbon pencil (black) shading and details, and layers of cream-colored chalk, terra-cotta colored pastel pencil, white pastel pencil, and touches of white pastel.

Hannah has such a soft, sweet face. She required a lot of time and care, and was worth every moment.

At 14 x 11" unmatted, this is larger than the 8 x 10" size that I'm most commonly asked for.


  1. That is lovely, I'm sure her people will be thrilled.

  2. This has to be a photo. No way that this is a painting. Josie and I were talking about this and we agree, it's just too real to not be a pic.
