While I was at St. Paul Art Crawl over the weekend, I found the photo below on my iPad and decided to sketch the little guy. It's not a great picture; it's poorly lit and somewhat blurry, but I liked the expression and chose to give it a try. Taylor belonged to a friend of mine who misses him very, very much. He was such a little dynamo that there aren't many great photos of him; he moved too fast!
Today I'm thinking I want to put in some of the freckling around his nose, and possibly add some subtle shading on one side of his face, and alter the shape of one ear a little bit. This is why I like to keep portraits around for a few days, if I can; I see things I didn't see at first.
