When my husband's grandma saw that I sketched, she asked me to do her portrait, like one of her friends had had done. She (grandma, not her friend) had just broken her hand several days before and wasn't able to fix her hair, so she just told me to put it into a bun. This didn't quite capture her, so I'll use it as a practice run for the watercolor and I'll try it again. She's 88 years old and looks fabulous for her age!
This was the family, sitting around the kitchen table playing dominoes this afternoon. They were a little bent out of shape because I didn't want to play, but how could I when I had this perfect opportunity to sketch?? I started off too large and then tried to squeeze everyone in. So, no, they were actually able to see each others dominoes! I probably wouldn't have survived anyway; this is a very competitive group! It was difficult to capture much of a likeness (not much there) because they moved, but so subtly that it was difficult to notice.
