My Annoying Younger Brother

Willow, Year 8

  • Drawing
  • Charcoal on paper
  • A2 portrait

After doing lots of landscapes and still life paintings I wanted to expand my portfolio and get more experience drawing people. I started to draw the members of my family starting out in charcoal. I really enjoy doing portraits and loved the ease of drawing in charcoal. I have a very angelic looking younger brother called Wilbur who has white blond hair and blue eyes and an infectious laugh. To most people he appears very sweet and he is most of the time but he can be very annoying too, especially during lockdown when we are all spending so much time together. I like the title as it is the opposite of what the sketch suggests.
