Drawings of everyday life

My 8 year old daughter joined Julia Kay’s Portrait Party

My daughter made in January a few portraits together with me for Julia Kay’s Portrait Party. Since February she joined the Portrait Party and she is now the youngest member. Allan O'Marra for JKPP10

Martin Beek for JKPP by Barien (8 years old)Portrait for show 2007

She made this drawing of Martin Beek, because Martin gave me in Oxford the portrait he made of her as a gift. She is totally delighted with the portrait.
Barien Kanie for JKPP

Other JKPP members loved it to the possibility to draw a child and Sue Rama exclaimed “I’d love to paint more children. Let’s invite more young artists to join the group!”

  4. Thanks so much for posting your daughters wonderful drawings. I have been trying to get my girls to join the portrait party for ages. I think this is just the motivation they need!

  8. That’s wonderful! She has really caught the “essence” of the models. I think it’s great that she has jumped right in.
