OK, I’m a pretty proud sponsor, but most of all, a very proud Grandmother. Talk about drawing from the model. I think this one is outstanding.  Her handling of her hair brings activity to a still portrait. And check out the detail of the eyes and the cami she is wearing.

Doodling with a pencil is easy. Self-portrait…not so easy. I don’t have the photo she used as reference, but look at her summer picture. She’s really captured a likeness.

First self portrait in college. Congrats to Rachel. It gets my ” A “ 


I’ll continue to keep you posted on her accomplishments. Thanks for your interest in this very talented young woman.
