Artist Adesina completes a portrait for Sandy Hook School Support Fund

Art for Newtown Pencil Portrait Completed

Art for Newtown Pencil Portrait Completed

I am so excited that my Charity Art Auction portrait, the sale of which benefitted the Sandy Hook / Newtown School Support Fund, has been completed and given to the donor!

I took much longer than I intended, as well as artistic license, because just doing a simple portrait did not seem like enough. Working closely with the donor, I asked her what her favorite things were, and cats came up very high on the list. Realizing she did not have one herself, I thought it would be nice to include one in her portrait. I then chose one of her most interesting features, her hair, and stylized its rendering, giving it a very illustrative quality, and much more dimension than if I had left it as a simple mass of black.

In the end the portrait came out much more finished and imaginative than either of us could have guessed, and I hope that the donor enjoys having it in her home, as much as I enjoyed drawing it.

Looking forward to portrait #2!

xoxo,

Adesina
