Saturday Sketch

This is a drawing of my mother and my grandfather, who recently passed away.

My cousin Juliette came across the photo I worked from when we were looking through Grandpa's albums. She said, "your next painting?" And I agreed. Great light and a very natural pose.

I am at the same time proud of this drawing and completely disappointed in it.

I like it. I think it turned out well, and if I do another one, or keep working on this one, it will be even better.

But this post is called SATURDAY SKETCH!! And this is not a sketch, it's a drawing. I spent HOURS on this drawing (and the other "Saturday Sketches" I've posted). I want the Saturday Sketch to be something I finish quickly, not labor on for many evenings.

So I will try to get better at this. Maybe I will make a 30 minute or 1 hour time limit?
