This was a commissioned portrait I did as a Christmas gift. I didn't upload it here at the time because I didn't want Ella's Grandmother to happen to find it on line and spoil a surprise.

What I love most about this particular portrait besides the fact that she's SO CUTE is the wonderful members of Artwanted.

I had run into some composition problems and started a thread in the critiques forum. Many thanks goes out to the wonderful people who helped make this portrait come together. It turned out to be a tremendous success and really made a grandma's Christmas!

8x10 on Bristol Vellum, mechanical pencils 2H,H,2B,& 4B.
