I'm a retired wanna be artist.
Here's a watercolor I did. The children are pastels.
And some of the children
Last summer I saw a photo of an 4 year old orphan who had just been given a teddy bear. His face was so joyfilled I sat down and did a pastel portrait sketch of him. My work is more sketchy and less finished. I sent the photo to him and now I'm doing portraits of all the children, (that wanted one), who are aging out of the orphanage.
There are 200 children and I'd like to do all of them.
btw, my sister tells me Leonardo DiVinci used to work on multiple paintings.
With hindsight it would have been more efficient to group similar skin toned people together in my groups of 5.
