Default Drawings

I haven't drawn anything freehand in about 15 years. Recently I've decided to try my hand at it again as sort of a therapeutic outlet/stress reliever. Here are my first 2 attempts. The first is a colored pencil drawing of Benaiah, my son. The second is my oldest daughter, Abigail. Each of them took me 20 to 30 minutes to complete.

WOW, Shawn, those are fantastic!

I didn't realize we had another artist besides our own Nate.

I wish I had the talent you two have been blessed with.

Shawn, that pic of Ben is fantastic! Even in colored pencils his determination & joy shine through. Great job capturing his heart like that!

Here is my youngest daughter, Emily, age 4, in her princess play outfit. I just got through drawing it, and titled it "Daddy's Little Princess, All Dressed Up"
