I ran in to these two young ladies at the lake and offered to take their picture. It came out well. The girls were thrilled--and so was my neighbor when I took her a copy. I didn't take the photo just to be nice, I took it because I spotted the magical relationship I once had with my best girlfriend that lasted till she passed.
These young ladies had the same magic. It will make a lovely full figure portrait. (I loved their shoes). This was my first study of how their heads blend together inseparable. Note, I pulled out my graphite box for this sketch. It's been a while since I held a pencil; I felt a bit rusty. Nevertheless, it was a pleasant evening of drawing as we listened to fireworks still filling the sky with dazzeling plumes of celebration.
