Today’s effort is an early Father’s Day sketch that I drew for my Father-in-Law. It’s based on an old family photo of my husband and his brother playing in a puddle with their dad and granddad. I believe the story goes that soon after this photo was taken both boys came down with chicken pox. Still, it remains a cherished family memory so I wanted to take a shot at capturing it.
I think I did alright at capturing the basics of it anyway. I definitely need to work on my perspective a bit more. Even though I was copying from a photograph I seem to have managed to do some pretty strange things with the perspective. Scenery is hard.
I may try to work on this one a bit more before sending it to my Father-in-Law. I may want to think about actually giving him a face at least. Luckily I’ve got one more day to go anyway. I just wanted to get it done ahead of time so that I wouldn’t be stressing out at the last second again. Also, this way I can stick to hand day for tomorrow’s sketch. That will be good since I missed figure drawing day.
