Portraits of Emma

My sisters and I have shared many long car rides and overseas flights so, naturally, they have featured in numerous sketches over the years. Here are a few sketches of Emma, my younger sister.

In the first image, Emma, backlit by the overhead lamp, was reading on our sleepless overnight flight to London Heathrow. I sketched Emma’s foot (in her decidedly non-walking shoe) during a break our self-guided family walking tour around Rome (see below). The final portrait was created while attempting to use DaVinci’s proportion guidelines which I discovered in a book purchased at the Louvre.

I’ve found that there’s no subject matter quite like a squirmy sister…just kidding, Emma, you did great!!
