Daniel Lee The most important person in my life

Age 12

9-12 year olds

The person I chose to paint is my brother Nathan. I chose him for this portrait because he has made my family happier and his smile has supported me during hard times. In my portrait, I drew him doing his two favourite things, which are eating and going to the park. My brother is the most important person in my life and I love him very much.
