RedBubble Portrait of Tahnja by 


The particular photo Tahnja I chose looked as if she needed to be in some sort of water. When I finished the piece, she looked like the mistress that captains of the sea speak about.

This piece was done on 12×12 Strathmore Drawing paper with navy blue fine tipped ink, markers, and gel ink. The color was enhanced with photoshop.

Lenora has been a Counselor/Family Worker for over 20 years. Currently, she has found have an inordinate amount of time working in the geriatric community. Using the time constructively, Lenora was crocheting with some of the ladies, as she use to with her mother who taught her the craft. In so doing, one of the ladies mentioned how she would have liked to have a portrait drawn. Lenora took on the task and was inspired to continue. The illustrations here are mostly inspired by her childhood.

    WOW This is awesome- What a beautiful underwater effect you have created and a perfect Tahnja- I know she will be blown away by this. I love the blues xx

  • Thank you Anita… the blue started with her eyes and went from there. I might have over did it just a touch. :)
