calendar girl

Meet beautiful Ms. Agnes, whose photo in a local nursing home's calendar inspired my very first attempt at drawing a person. She is as pretty and sparkling as June -- the month she's featured -- and capturing the memories in her face and the twinkle in her eye proved very very difficult. I don't know her, but I think I'd like to.

Here you can see the mistakes in proportion and symmetry I've made...but still, this is really fun.
