Overwhelmed by the support I’ve gotten from this drawing I did of my daughter for the #ChristmasWillBeWaiting drawing request from Alison Sudol’s song of the same name for JK Rowling’s charity, Lumos. Of course, I wanted to contribute! I didn’t know what I was going to draw, so I went with what I know, portraits. I chose a photo of my daughter from when she was a toddler so I could have a good emotional connection to it. The drawing itself was quick. I sat down with a coffee and quiche between my classes with my sketchbook and my box of vine charcoals. I’ve done several sketchbook drawings there. It’s a favorite place for people to work on things since the eating area is so bright and open. I’m happy with the results, though, like anything, there are parts I wish I’d improved, but I see through those to the emotion I was trying to capture.
