My Brother and Grandson

Sketch of a man holding his grandson by Sarah Sullivan

My Brother and Grandson

My brother met his grandson this week. Of course, it was well documented, and I have looked at one particular photo many times. It shows the contrast in age and size, the beauty of the child and in particular, the complex mixture of joy, wonder, humility, and bliss on my brother’s face. I wanted to capture this in a sketch but did not quite get it right.

    Love the lines or strokes of your brush within each shape, Sarah! They describe direction and add depth and interest – nice work.
