To me drawing portraits is a labour of love.
It is just another hobby of mine, I'm no seasoned artist who can capture the beauty of a face with a few pencil strokes.
Sometimes I just can't get a portrait to look the way I want it to, but that makes it even more satisfying when a portrait does work out right.
The pictures of the portraits shown here are more-or-less actual size.
One nice thing about drawings with lots of fine details is that these still look good when enlarged, so I scanned the portrait of Jacqui at almost true size.
After scanning I added color to a copy of the portrait and put it on the background of the desktop of my pc.
