small pencil portrait

a few days ago i was looking at pictures and videos of my little nephew on flickr, had a sketch block on my lap, and had pencils lying on the table. it wasn't planned but I just couldn't help myself: this led to a small pencil portrait of him. now I have my baby nephew smiling at me from next to the fire place.

one of my art students had asked if i would paint a portrait for him of his 3 grandchildren. he's been thinking of a unique present for them, something they don't already have. i think portraits are a great gift idea, everybody loves them! i made one with charcoal for our very good friends' wedding anniversary. they got it framed and hung it up immediately. it really made me happy to see how much they liked it.

wirklich toll simona!!! ich finde es eine schöne begabung, wenn man so genau zeichnen kann. Mein papa kann auch so fein zeichnen... mir hat er's nicht vererbt :) ich kann eher grob und großflächig malen

Thanks, Kelly and Sylvia! Glad you like it.

@ Steffi: Also auf jeden Fall hat dir dein Papa dann 'ne ganze Menge Kreativität vererbt und ein gutes Auge für Details!
