Better Together portrait, finished!

Hooray! The Better Together portrait is finished! I like the way it came out. I think my favorite part is the bodice of the bridal gown.

I now have one Christmas order left! Gasp! I've been continually working on drawings for about six weeks now, and I'm feeling a bit burnt out. I've discovered that giving myself plenty of time to finish each piece helps a lot with keeping the fun alive. If I have an extra day or two to work on a drawing, then if I come home from work feeling cranky, tired, and brain-fried, I can leave drawing until the next day, hopefully to sit down to it with a fresher mind.

But this last drawing needs to be done by Sunday at the latest, so I have no such time luxury. My bosses have been asking for overtime at work and there's still Christmas shopping to do and cookies to bake. Yikes! I just have to make it through this last week!

See this drawing in progress: part 1 and part 2.


  1. I, too, enjoy a nice bodice. Look good, by the way. How is it that Christmas has become a form of tyranny?

  2. Wow! What a wonderful portrait! Very talented!


Thank you for leaving a comment! I read every single one!
