A MEMORIAL TO DAD

The client commissioned this portrait of a friend's father, holding his infant daughter, to give to the daughter in memory of her dad. Using charcoal, I tried to re-create the provided photo as realistically as possible while capturing the spirit of Dad as well. Ultimately, the recipient felt like she could touch her dad's face - the ultimate compliment for me.
