Mum - Lena
A second attempt in my life time to create a portrait of my late mum. When I was just 16 years old I did a basic portrait of her in oils. I rather liked it but my 5 brothers and sisters found it highly amusing.
This time aged a bit more than 49 I have attempted her again in pastels. Again I am rather pleased with it BUT there is still something lacking. The glare I think is wrong and the fact that I chopped of the top of her head hasn't helped.
Anyway it hasn't managed to put me off, I will attempt her again and hope I capture her true beauty both in her smile and her personality next time. Let me know what you think.
