This photo was taken a couple of years ago at a family reunion. It is mostly siblings with children and grandchildren along with a a few cousins. The reason for the photo is we celebrated Mom's 91st birthday yesterday as well as other birthdays. So wonderful to share life with my large family.
Haven't done any drawing or painting other than starting a nose study which I won't post. It is so important when doing facial features to see and understand how the features sit in or on the face. I am having trouble setting the eyes in their sockets and the nose, though it looks simple, has been difficult for me to shape when drawing or painting.
My studio is topsy-turvy as I move out some furniture, getting ready to paint and rearrange. Because the room is so crowded it means doing one area and moving things back and forth. I know though, it will be well worth the effort. In the meantime, I want to clear an area so I can at least paint.
