Kiss from Nana drawing drawing I like to do series.  I wanted to show wrinkles, age, shadows, non-traditional portraits and make them interesting, at least to me.  Originally it was just a self-portrait, and then it was only going to be old people, but I am doing young people as well.   I like drawing other artists.

One artist remarked that the reason why artists do self-portraits is because the model is free, available, and doesn’t mind if liberties are taken with the image.  That is good because I’d rather draw character, and have people like the image of a smooch, and the colors – it’s different, it shows fun and life.

 These are all 14 x 17 on Bristol with ink and colored pencil.   I have sold several of them ($100) and that is, I think, a deal. ~Leslie Aguillard
