my Brother's New Family

More than a Year ago my only brother got married. I was the best man, and I had to have a good gift also!  I am living paycheck-to-paycheck, so I decided that I would try to give as much of my talent as possible.

I labored many days on this Family Portrait and actually enjoyed the experience.

This pic is only one of many "in-process" pics I have.
The photo I worked off of is at the bottom right.  I did a sketch study (top left) and my watercolor study (upper middle).

I'll post more in the future!

  1. Very cool gift idea Ralf and the best thing you could give them. I always found portraits to be hard to do and admire anyone who can do them well. Looks like you are well on your way to a beautiful piece there.
