This family are no strangers to my drawing board. I drew Natasha and Evie when Evie was just a baby, then again when Dan and Natasha got married in 2013. I know Natasha had been wanting to update her collection for some time as, since their wedding portrait, a little sister had arrived for Evie and they had also bought themselves a rather lovely new house.
The picture was a Christmas gift for Natasha from her Mum, and even though it was one of the first Christmas commissions on my list and delivered quite early, she showed frankly inhuman strength by finding the willpower to keep it in its packaging until Christmas Day. Amazing!
