Second Portrait Sitting with Catherine

This is the outcome of my second portrait sitting with Catherine, my wife's mum. People fascinate me and the process of drawing a live portrait is just so beautiful. It's a conversation in the most true sense. Both of these drawings took about 1.5 hours each and involved me making marks and catching gestures as we spoke to one another about all sorts of things, personal and political. I feel like I'm getting closer to really capturing her with each drawing & hopefull will have some wonderful outcomes by the end. The challenge of usuing multiple parts of my brain at once I am really enjoying. Conversing whilst drawing helps both the sitter and myself to relax in each others company and also enables me to witness and document a range of expressions, emotions and gestures. I'll update my progress as I go along. Mondays are quickly becoming a day to look forward to for both she and I & my passion for portraiture is really growing.
