Lost in his thoughts

A drawing of a boy

One of my earliest portrait works was this handsome little man. Come and meet my son Ian on his communion day. It was late in the day and it had been eventful for the little man. He was lost in deep thought when I managed to capture a photo of him. I knew this was what I wanted to draw. The thoughtful side of him not many people get to see.

This drawing has pride of place in my home and I love how everyone comments on it.
