This is a small 11 x 14 sketch of Kaitlyn. She and her mom were kind enough to visit my studio and pose for me. Stormy, Kaitlyn's mom, is in the Army...a 1st Sergeant. I asked them to pose for my ongoing military life series. Stormy brought her uniform so I could depict typical military scenes that were parts of my everyday life. I expected Stormy to be easy to direct because she is a beauty pageant winner and very poised. Kaitlyn was a delightful surprise. She took direction well and has such thoughtful, soulful features. I did this quick sketch to warm up for some larger pieces I am working on.
