14 – my valentine

If you are lucky, you will have one of these (a true love) for part of your life. I was. This is a sketch of my husband with his wonderful uproarious smile. This could turn into loud laughter in an instant. This smile makes me smile every time I see it.
The smile is the hardest expression to draw on a face. You have to pay attention to all the smile muscles, and not overdo it, or what you end up with is a grimace. While this is not the best likeness of my sweetie, I think I caught his smile.

  1. Great smile! I know it is so hard to get the mouth right, and I don’t know how you do it with watercolors. With oils every little bit of paint changes the look…It’s amazing, but can be very frustrating. I think you did a great job!
