A Home for Christmas

Just finished this house for a client.  It is her great grandfather's house,
and she is giving it as a gift to her father.  I did pen and ink drawing
and then painted it with watercolor.  She told me that the
shingles used to be black, so I painted a darker roof. 

I hope she likes it, and that he is surprised! 
Merry Christmas!

Seeing Double

Several years ago, I did a drawing of a baby girl for a client.
It is a large portrait, about 20 x 24.  Awhile back, the same client
brought me this photo of the baby girl's new baby
brother.  She wanted me to do a matching portrait of him
as well.  This is the portrait in progress...some of the shading
done, but not finished.

But tonight, I was able to finish it!  So, here is the new
drawing of the baby boy...

And here is the other earlier drawing of the sister.  They almost
look like twins...a strong family resemblance.  I think these
are going to be gifts for the mom of these babies.  I hope
she will be surprised!

Merry Christmas!!
