Easter Fest Portraits

The day after the kids club comics making workshop (see previous post) the church we were involved with (Holy Trinity Kingsford) ran their Easter Fest. Dave the minister asked me to do some portrait sketching, which was quite fun! I enjoy drawing portraits, and at this event discovered that lots of people wanted family portraits, or portraits with their friends - more so than individual ones. Makes sense.

Here are some I did:

Above are Jess and Grace, two girls on our team who I drew first. Their portraits became my 'samples' to give others two colour options.

These two photos were mother-daughter portraits - both girls had been in my comics making workshop the day before. 

A couple of friends - Sandra and Susan.

The largest family I drew that day! So lovely. I got them all to sit together first, sketched the outline of their heads and then drew facial details one person at a time so the others could take a break - a necessary technique with small children!
