New Portrait

In Uncategorized on April 22, 2011 at 12:53 pm

Today I did the first sketch of a new portrait. What a great feeling! Neil is the sitter and a marvellous subject he is too.

Jessie and I both sat and drew him in charcoal. Her lines, bold as ever, managed to capture the essence of what is, after all, one of her
best friends.

Today was a study session, now I shall have a think about how I want to portray him although I already have had an idea floating around my head since last year when he sat for one of my portrait workshops.

Jess took lots of photos, some for her, some for Neil and some for me.

Can’t wait to get started!
