After numerous attempts (up in the 20's) at drawing mum from a very small thumb nail picture. This is the final version, its as close as i can get to her , it looks like mum to me. Though , i feel i still haven't quite got her smile right, its one of those things do you tweak and maybe cause more problems? Or do you accept it as done? I decided that after tweaking several and spoiling them, that this is it the definitive one. Hope you like it!
Drawn on approx a4 white mount board
Please bear in mind mum wore 2 hearing aids this made her specs sit incorrectly sometimes more exaggerated than others depending on how mum had inserted her aids. Also, mum had osteoporosis which gave her a dowager hump and caused her to twist/slant sideways.
