  1. I meant to congratulate you a while back! It seems we had new additions within weeks of one another. You’ve captured your child very well in this drawing; I’ve had the hardest time making my drawings of baby look like a baby and not a creepy old man! (And she’s a girl!) Brilliant drawing here. Congratulations again and Happy New Year.

    • Yes, babies are difficult to draw. We really have to drop all our preconceived ideas about proportion etc. Prior to this all my other fleeting drawings of children mostly failed but now I have my own little model to study ;-)
      Best wishes for the new year from our family to yours, Russell.

  2. Wowww!!! Congratulations Russell and to your wife!!! Your portrait is marvelous and I’m sure you are both walking around on cloud nine (and a bit sleep deprived!!). Looking forward to seeing more of your drawings of him!
