This charming piece was a family birthday in the 1950s. The same family were reuniting in 2017 and one of the children on the front row (now in his sixties) wanted the drawing completed in time for that. The final piece was 20 x 16 inches.
Drawing all the faces was a great challenge, along with the 1950s clothes and hairstyles. It was drawn in charcoal with graphite for finer details.
