I don’t know what it is about Leslie White, but all she has to do is say a word or two to me and I get motivated to try something, if not new, then again if I have not been successful at something in the past. Thank you, Leslie.
Over the last few months or so I have been trying to do a portrait in any mediums that I am accustomed to using of my pup, “Cici.” To my avail not one attempt looked remotely close to her in features or expression. I recently shared a few words with my friend Leslie and she suggested I do a portrait of Cici, and that was all it took for me to give it a whirl again. This time I made my attempt with pen and ink (a medium that I have only recently been using) and was actually surprised with the results. I do see I have a ways to go to get her to look as she does in the photo, but this time I feel I captured a little bit of her in a way.
