About the artwork

This painting has significant value to me. After 20 years of not touching a single pencil, this is the first drawing I did. It came after a long period of time when I felt lost and not inspired anymore and It symbolizes my personal renaissance.

Anastacia is my stepdaughter. She is very smart and beautiful. One day I wanted to take some pictures of her at the beach. We had a long walk and I had my camera with me.

The day was almost over, and the sun was setting. I took a few pictures of her. Her glance was so deep and interesting that I decided I wanted to do more than a picture.

So I made a portrait of her, with pencils.

For the first time in years, I set a space in my house and got some pencils and paper and I started the sketch.

I immediately started shading her braids and her hair. That was the most challenging part. If you look closely at her forehead you will see the natural fuzziness where her hair starts. Another part that I enjoyed working on a lot was her facial features, knowing that was a critical part in order to truly capture her. The right proportions of the features are the key to good portraits.

What is the meaning of this sketch? Well, if you look closely at her eyes you will see the ocean, the beach, and the reflection of the horizon.

And that is my wish to her, to always keep the ocean in her eyes. To always dream big, as a young woman of color. The sketch was completed in 2021 and it comes with a beautiful gold leaf frame.
It took me two months of work to complete this sketch. I used to live sketch for years when I was a teenager. At some point, it was something that came very naturally to do.

I am also available to do custom portraits for you and your family if you are interested.
