My good friend Liz Lynner is a nanny who has been watching over these two little ones for at least a year (I believe its more but I could be wrong). She's been featured in a local paper about her superhero skills in taking care of children, and I have, in the past, worked with her at a child day care were we taught in the same room (I was her assistant). Now, after time, this is where we are. She asked me to draw the two girls as angels for their mother, Sarah. Sarah's birthday is right around the corner and what a gift!
Below is the sketch so far. The reason I bring up challenges is because, yes, I used to do portraits A LOT, now...I'm a bit out of practice. Also, I'm going to be creating this portrait in watercolor....that is a bit scary and new to me. But at the same time I'm incredibly excited about it and hope that I can continue doing portraits with my beloved watercolors.
My question for you today is this...
"What challenges have you faced in either commission, freelance, or at school? How did you respond to it? How did it all turn out in the end? Did you learn something?"
