Another Pam Portrait
Here is another lady named Pam that I did a portrait of last year. The portrait was done as a memorial for her. She was killed in a motorcycle accident in April 2008. She would have been my youngest son's mother-in-law. This is an example of the dark darks that can be achieved with layering ball point pen medium. If you look closely at the eyes you can see that there is a slight difference in the right from the left. Pam lost her right eye when she was young and had a glass eye. I did not try to alter this specific difference to make them more semetrical as in a classical portrait but, rather I wanted to keep her image totally her. She is dearly missed... Cheers!
