My Mum


Very hard to draw ones mother when surrounded by critics (Karen, what do you think?) Mum eventually decided she was happy to let it go at that and I've got a headache for my troubles. There will be other mother drawings to come.

Say hello to your mum from me. And you dad if he's there as well. I recognized her immediately, for what its worth. Glad to see at least one of your fans has taken up the chant for a nude in a bar!

Thank God you couldn't see the beer can in this picture.

Hi Cheeky!

Susie said...

It's great! But the thing is, your mom has such strikingly beautiful and youthful eyes, this on B & W can't capture it. Also she lights up when she smiles.

Suzanne said...

Awesome! She seems very stoic in this-is that how she is in real life?

I've just had a look at your previous pics of mum... when you compare this with your previous postings, this is BY FAR THE BEST you've done...

Karen, I'll pass on your comments to mum, I know she is keen to hear them.

Hans, I'll say hi from you and dads here too, I'm pleased to say.

Cole, the GnT was just out of shot and as for the sad thing ,it's something i have to work on.

Rich, thanks for stopping by, hope to see you soon.

Susie, I'm going to try a watercolor at some point and i hope she can smile for that long.

Suzanne, stoic barely covers it.
