A memory of love

Portraying a lost loved one is a hard job, as the family that was left behind has a certain memory of them that they seek. Using different techniques, multiple pensils and multiple examples.

Unfortunately a father passed before his time, leaving an Italian mom one with her kids. As she wanted to keep the memory of her love alive she took het last money and travelled to Milan to seek an artist to make a portrait of het late husband. the artist of het choice created something that did not portrait the memory of the late husband end the mom was devastated. Ten year ahead in time I meet the daughter and hear about this sad story. And although it had been a decade since the last drawing, I bough some handmade paper 950x70cm) and gave it ago.
