Bev,

The drawing of Dylan is fantastic.  So lifelike.

Awestruck.

 :thankyou: :thankyou: :thankyou:  Thank you so much, Sally, Patricia, Danielle, Mea and Val! Your kind supportive words mean so much to me and yes, I am proud of "Dylan".  I did a bit more tweaking, just a couple of little things , nothing major. I never ever thought I would be able to draw a portrait and I'm still not sure that it was me that did this one. . .  ;D !! Thanks again to my friends and fellow artists for keeping me going when it got tough and special thanks to Nolan for being a fabulous understanding teacher who got me to draw a portrait all by my little self!! Now who would have thunk it??? :o ;D 
I live to draw and paint, it a good thing that I don't have to draw and paint to live!

Thank you Patricia you always say the nicest things! :1hug:  The very best pat on the back I could have ever gotten was the look on his parents faces when we gave it to them. Priceless!! His Mom cried!! Now they want me to draw his older brother. . . .whoops!!!

The difference is dramatic now that you have moved the light. Just fade the shadow cast on the neck by the face out shower O0

 :clap: :clap: :clap: Oh! Bev, how wonderful that Dylan's parents were so touched by the portrait you did, to even bring his mother to tears, speaks volumes.  Well, that goes to show you that your work is excellent and the fact that they want you to draw their older son should give you such impetus and confidence in your ability to do another fine job.  It gives me goosebumps. I am so proud of you Bev.  Now go for it and we will be here on the side lines to cheer you on.     Patricia

Oh Val. . .you are forever my inspiration!
Thank you Patricia. . . . but let's not hold our breath for Liam's portrait, things move very slowly in that household and I doubt it will be anytime soon that Melanie will get me a suitable picture of #1 son. In the meantime, my pencils are still busy but I'm keeping you in suspense as to who is on my drawing table. . . . :2funny:

Bev, I can think of many islands dotting azure water, with exotic sounding names and romantic places and Hawaii is foremost in my mind .... but you still have me  :confused: .  As Val would say, "my suspenders are getting tight".
