Here, Baby Emmett Lorcan Harney is full of character and an active
ten weeks old. Emmett
has strong features and a wonderful drawn-out smile. His eyes with beautiful long lashes are discerning and kind. It took
me four attempts to capture little Emmett in a drawing.
I made three attempts from life and reworked the final drawing from the original and memory. Emmett's mother Angela is very patient. She and I would laugh and call little Emmett "the King" on their arrival, such is the devotion and attention a little child commands!
