My Son

by Cindy Barnard

This is my son. I took this picture on his wedding day almost 6yrs ago and drew it over the past couple of weeks.

He's a wonderful son and my most admired person in this world. Heart of gold, great provider and blessed me with 2 beautiful grandchildren and a lovely daughter-in-law! I love him dearly!

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Cindy
Gee that's a lovely drawing of your son. You have really improved with your portraits, you must be so proud of yourself! I know I am proud of you. As I look at your drawing, I feel as though your son is instantly like-able. Great job on both counts Cindy! (i.e. mother and artist)

Somebody Special

Somebody Special To Me

Somebody Special To Me

I've been doing some fundamental drawing exercises that have really helped me improve my portrait drawings. This young lady is someone very special to me but I'm afraid I have to keep her name a secret.

It took me about 3hrs a day for a week to finish it. I used prismacolor/agua graphite pencils 4H,2H,HB,2B and 4B.

I'm very happy with the results and I hope you like it too! It was difficult to photograph...came out a little light...

Hi Cindy!
Gee, your portrait drawing looks so good! One of the most amazing things about this hobby of ours is the way we improve imperceptibly. We keep drawing because we love it but we are improving all the time too. I will stay enthralled until my dying day, methinks.
Kudos to you though, I know you have been doing a lot of paintings and drawing usually takes a backseat while that's happening.

Grandma's Nolie Canoli

This is a portrait of my grandson...the title is my loving nickname for him.

It's my second attempt...Whenever I draw portraits I feel like they're all a little stiff looking. It looks like him, just can't seem to get that natural expression I'm looking for...the picture I drew it from was taken in a restaurant, I snapped it while he was sipping from a straw...I'm pretty happy with it considering it was my second try.

Sure hope you like it!
Your friend,
Cindy

PS: I think I'll try "pencil portraits in 7 days" Kerry! Have to wait till I get the funds though.
I got your email about the "ignorant" guest to your site and what that person said... It is my strong opinion that you have never ever misrepresented anything on your site!! I looked at a lot of other sites and found yours to have a very diverse class of artist who do draw as a hobby and that all the comments were kindly constructive and very supportive!! That is the reason I chose to participate in your site alone!! You offer links to very informative sites that have helped me emensely! I would have deleted their comment too had I been in your shoes! I have found you to be very knowledgeable in the advice you've given so don't let them get you down! There's just some mean nasty hateful people in this world and one got through the cracks!! I love you, your art, your site and I'm proud to be a small part of your world!!!
Your Friend Across the Ocean,
Cindy Barnard

Hi Cindy,
Aw shucks, thank you so much for your kind, supportive words - they mean a lot to me.

As for your drawing, I think it's fantastic!! It's got "Cindy's style" stamped all over it and I'm a big fan of your work. I'm not sure you need the book? That's great for only a 2nd attempt, gosh I'd be mighty proud of it too! What medium have you used Cindy? Is that color pencil or watercolor? It's hard to tell and that shrieks 'pro'.
