Putting One Foot in Front of the Other

Posted Apr 2015

Today I was hired to draw all the Children ~ only draw Adults if there's time at the end of the 2-year-old's Party.

4:29pm - Me, as a woman sits into the seat: "I'm only going to be here until 4:30. This is going to last one."

Woman: "Oh ~ Then you can come into the picture with me, Honey."

Me: "I meant I could only draw one more Person. There are other activities planned for you at 4:30.

Woman: "But oh we just got married" My Client: "I don't understand. They are newleyweds." Me, can't think anymore. I guess I should eat some lunch already: "Oh, I see. But you are going to be drawn together as one."

They all liked the picture I drew. Everybody was happy.

But when I got to Starbucks, I used the reference photo to try an IPad Caricature again. Today I figured out how to choose whether I want to affect one layer at a time or more-than-one layer at a time.

Oh this lady was having Fun at the Party. I usually try to draw everyone once before I would draw anyone a second time, but this Party was okay about it. So some people were drawn more than once. I particularly like how some people choose to make someone else feel very special ~ by asking to be drawn together in a group. A little more difficult for the Artist to pull off, but sooooo worth it:

I felt so good at this Communion. I had drawn this man at his son's First Birthday (that's the picture with the cards). Then I drew him again at his son's Communion (I got a photo of him holding it this time).

I asked him to wait until I drew the new picture before showing me the old one. I felt so happy to see that I saw the same thing both times. Both excellent Caricatures ~ I was happy to see that I did know what i was doing back 6 years ago. I thought the drawings were much harder for me back then, but maybe I'm mistaken. Maybe it was Ten years ago that it was harder?

Anyway, i hadn't seen these people in many years. Feels like it was yesterday, but apparently, the babies sure grew a lot in that time.
