My father is kind, smart and unbelievably hardworking. I am incredibly lucky to have someone so supportive of me in all of my endeavours. His sacrifices have given me incredible opportunities and I will be eternally grateful. My words might never display my full gratitude, but actions may, so I drew his portrait. This portrait captures him lost in thought. The composition draws the viewer into his eyes, it brings out his gentle, yet tough nature. He is a true inspiration to me, my guiding star.
