Lead Pencil, HB, 2H 4H, 2B, 4B, 6B,8B, 10 hours.

I have been hanging onto this one for a few weeks now, as the recipient, the daddy of this beautiful little lady, was having his birthday today, and we all waited until he received them! I also have one of Eliana's big brother, but this little girl was beautiful to draw, and as I looked through all of the reference photo's and her mummies photo albums on facebook of Eliana, I realised just how precious and beautiful she is! Mum, Lucy, was adamant that she wanted lead pencil, which I was thrilled to do,(my favourite medium above anything), and I had the most pleasurable time doing them, so thank you so much Lucy for choosing me over all of the many many things you could have to show your husband how much you adore him on his birthday. May these portraits be in your family for many generations to come.
Lucy has this to say about her beautiful little girl.......
"My baby girl is Eliana and she is my angel. Alessio (her brother) has the face of an angel, and she is the true cherub with her little blonde curls and she also has bright blue eyes like her brother. Always smiling and laughing and loves to eat. She is 17months and walks around like she owns the place- she struts! She is very affectionate and understands everything you say to her. Very curious and likes to be very independent, she loves the wiggles and tellietubbies and loves pushing her pram and doll around.
She is a very sweet and gentle girl, who loves to scrunch up her nose and smile and always makes a run for the door when she hears it open!"

Eliana sounds adorable, doesn't she? hopefully I have got her image right to show the world her little soul.

Amazing portrait Karina, Eliana is such a cute little girl, those eyes ... Oh my goodness, those eyes! Love the little button nose, the shape of her mouth and those chubby little cheeks too. Nice detail in her hair and the blurred background is a great touch to bring her into focus. Awesome work. Marty.

for Karina Griffiths
Karina GriffithsSometimes I wonder how we as such feeling and emotional beings live without a soul mate, or a couple of good friends, or a family that will always accept us for no matter who we are or choose to be. But then I really wonder if the happiness we need to attract all of these essentials into our lives is a result of pursuing something innate within us that makes us happy to the core. And then we are content and attractive to those around us. I cannot express how happy I feel when I draw. I get transported into a timeless womb, where my eyes and hands talk without words, caressing the subject matter and in some ways, translating it into my own language so that I can tell others how something makes me feel when I see it. It is a compulsion. And...
I wonder how many here struggle with painting animals such as horses? I am out of my comfort zone trying to do them...any suggestions other than practice...
Hi Bevie, a nice composition. I would suggest checking out the equine artists who have written books on drawing and painting horses. There are quite a few... view answer
