a beautiful bride-to-be


This week I had the pleasure of working on wedding portraits for my friend Awena. This was fun for several reasons. First, my model looked absolutely stunning....this makes my job a lot easier! Second, she'd asked that the drawings remain sketchy and gestural which is a more natural way of working for me. And third, it offered me an opportunity for some life drawing which I don't get nearly enough of these days.


Awena's wedding is just a few days away. These drawings are being given as gifts to her husband and parents. I hope they love them!

Hi, I just discovered your blog and I just love these sketches! You have done a perfect job in capturing the dreaminess and softness and sensuality at the same time. They are beautiful.
Great work you have on your blog.
