Little Girl With Bike.

3 1/4" x 2 1/4" B & W Photo

This is a picture of me and the old house taken when I was about 10 years old. In the back of that house is the Pasig River where my siblings and I used to swim, fish and play. Lots of good memories with them.

3B pencil on 6" x 5" paper.

I've been trying my hand at doing figures and portraits and this is as close as I can get to that tiny picture above.

This is awesome! Is pencil more difficult than paint?


Mari said...

That is the easiest to use. No colors to blend or's soft lead pencil, your drawing comes out like a black and white photo. And you can take your sketch pad and pencil anywhere. Give it a try.

PS - Tell 'da bear' I said thanks.

hey, that was not too bad! a little more practice and you're there!


Mari said...

Thanks, Nancy. The picture was so small I can't see the face well. It turned out prettier than the original. LOL. Yeah, more practice...and maybe I'll get there.

I love reminiscing the past too. I like the picture and the pencil drawing. Thanks for sharing :-)

The "then" is what made us "now."

Thanks for your nice comment.
