A portrait of my daughter, Grace, 6. Been trying to get to grips with textures, would love to do more of this sort of thing in my portraits. Any advice is welcome ( :

Canon 400D, natural light, photoshop cs2


curly hair, fabric, floral, garden, girl, grace, micklyn, portrait, tapestry, texture

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.

    Beautiful girl and a lovely vintage feel to it.

  • Thanks! I photographed an antique chair I have that is covered in this lovely tapestry like fabric for the texture, so if it looks vintage, it’s because it is!
