Default Megan

WIP. Started last October/December when Megan got sick.. I worked on it every few days.... but when Toby died I couldn't bear to look at it, so I haven't touched it since February. Megan died on the thirteenth, and her mommy and daddy are getting this portrait of her for Christmas.



I'm not really sure what I'm doing here.... I can't get the right expression that shows her sweetness and her queenliness all at once.

i had one of Bronki and Mary i was working on when he passed. Finishing that was the hardest thing i have ever done, i had to turn my head to keep from dripping on the paper. I am glad i did tho, i caught everything about him that i loved so much in that drawing. You have such a lovely work in progress, and i think you should finish.

Although, Smkie, if you have any tips for me I will listen with open ears... I keep looking at it an feeling lost, and remembering Megan eating treats out of my hand and not even knowing where to start.

your doing just fine just let the medium guide you. I work from the center out, but sometimes it is just nice to work a little here and a little there. I don't know about anyone else but my mind will go from one memory to another while i am working on a piece like this, and that is a tribute i think, somehow those pieces always come out the best.

Thank you... I don't have enough work done on it really to merit another picture, though....
