First Portrait

Since taking up pyrography I have not done any wood turning. I will get back to it eventually. I wanted to try doing a portrait and what better subject for my first one than myself? My daughter recently took a good picture of me while I was holding my first great grandson. I decided to use this as a trial piece to see how well I could do it. I found an app on my IPhone that would change photos into line drawings. I’m not really satisfied with the app’s results but till I find a better one it will have to do.

I think the results came out satisfactory. At least it looks like me.

The third picture is the one I completed just before I did my portrait. This one was drawn by Lora Irish but I added the moon to it.

Comments and critiques always welcomed and appreciated!
