This is a commissioned work that I did for a colleague at work. He wanted a portrait of himself with his granddaughter at the first and only time he played hockey with her, so that they would both remember the day.
Ellen DeGeneres is another person I do admire, for everything she is and everything she does. I just had to do a portrait of her as well. This portrait is the first in my whole series of portraits of people I admire or just simply want to draw.
I have to admit that I’m not a huge fan of Drew Barrymore, but this image was just absolutely stunning I had to draw it. It was for an ad in a magazine. It seems tinted yellow because of the light filter on my camera.
