A new portrait

It has been a good few months since I started a new art project. So I asked my neighbour if I could do a portrait of her. She happily agreed and was very excited about what it would look like. I like to do symbolic/prophetic art. I spend time praying for the person in question and see what I think God is saying about them. I then try and convert that into symbolic imagery. It is very personal to the sitter, so I will have to ask the permission to share what the symbols mean. At the moment I am at the preliminary stage.This involves photographing the model, sketching and praying lots. So here are the drawings and the photograph , so you can see what I am working from.Enjoy.
