Day 135: Kat’s Graduation Portrait

Posted by annagrace under Days 101-200

So…… I’m in Chicago!!!!! My sister is graduating with her masters in horn performance this weekend, so me and the fam came up for it! As my present to her, I did a portrait of her and her horn. (FYI posting this on my phone, so sorry for any awkwardness!!)

Enjoy!

Day 132: 2 Portraits

Posted by annagrace under Days 101-200

So, I’m currently working on two pretty big, important charcoal portraits that I’ve got to get done by Wednesday night before I go to Chicago (eeee!!! So excited!!), so I don’t really have anything to post tonight. Since these are pretty intense, I think I’m going to count them as 3 days worth of posts…

At any rate, both of these are gifts, so I don’t want to reveal too much of them to you just yet, but here’s a sneak peek of what I’ve done so far with the first one.

Sorry it’s so blurry! The second piece I only got to laying out my grid and doing a basic outline.

I may look like I haven’t done much, but it took awhile to lay it out and size everything! Plus, I got like 3 hours of sleep last night, so I’m calling it a night. I’ll do another update post tomorrow, and maybe I’ll be done with one of them!?

Day 93(3 days late): Charcoal Wedding Portrait!

Posted by annagrace under Days 1-100

I’ve just gotten back to my aunt and uncle’s condo after the wedding of their oldest son!! Matt has always been like a big brother to me, and I was so happy to see him harry an amazing girl like Clarissa!

Anyways, as our wedding present to them, my sister and I gave them a nicely framed portrait! The frame us the one from a few days ago that I painted, and Katherine paid for, and I decided to do a graphite/charcoal portrait of them! I’m posting this on my phone so I don’t have the original picture, but I will post it later!

The wedding was beautiful as was the bride! I’m so happy for you both! Welcome to the family Clarissa!
