Dewar Family Portraits

n family together 2sketches

A family portrait I made as a paper anniversary gift commission for Nicky Dewar, in ink and watercolour. The photos Nicky sent me as references, as well as the ones on her Instagram, were so playful and fun that I felt like there just had to be two parts – the first with everyone grouped more traditionally and then one full of movement.

I’ve also put up some of the rough sketches and colour tries I made before starting on the final works.

Nicky’s website features beautiful quilts that she makes, and she wrote a lovely blog post about these portraits – so nice to see the drawings happy in their rightful setting 😀

Thanks so much again for this great & greatly enjoyable commission!colour sketches
