Dear Departed Drawings ~ Joel 63

I am about 40 hours into this drawing, give or take an hour.  Average time per day spent is 40 minutes.  I cleaned up Kendalyns leg, worked on the saddle and her dress.  I hope their smiling faces bring you some joy today.

Dear Departed Drawings ~ Joel 62

Spent time on the carousel horse today.  Still more work to be done on the horse, hands, possibly the dress, Kendalyns knee, and then small adjustments.  I was only afforded 30 minutes of draw time today.  Thinking there won't be many more posts until the reveal of the completed portrait.  Joels days are numbered.

Rounding up details on the carousel background.  I have more work to do on Joels hands and the carousel horse.  Almost finished!

Ok so I am able to pull us through our days by doing different things...going different places...eating at different restaurants....visiting places he didn't care for...but some things you do still have to be the same...and these are the times that hurt the most.  ~ Karen

In it to win it.  Still working it.  More work on background today, very pleased.  More work on the carousel horse needed.  They just look so happy.  The days are numbered for this portrait.

Dear Departed Drawings ~ Joel 58

Making minor changes to background, so slight they probably aren't noticeable.  Happy the drawing is coming together so nicely.  Hoping to make his family fall in love.   The carousel horse needs more work, then not much more.  Pretty satisfied with Joel and Kendalyn and there won't be anymore major changes if any at all.
