Today’s drawing

I attended a different open studio today. This one meets a little closer to my home than the Atlanta Artist Center, and they are actively looking for new members. I will probably attend both studios as my needs dictate.

This week’s model was a young man of Pakistani descent. He had a fantastic head, so that’s what I tackled. I was positioned a bit below him, so the view of his face is foreshortened, and I’m still not sure how well I pulled that off. Getting home and viewing the drawing with a snapshot taken from my angle, I can see I got a lot right, but his nose is too long and his upper lip too small. I worried about that there, and to be honest, I couldn’t see that well. Next time I do a head drawing, I move in much closer.

    Hi gord – thanks for the comment! This guy took me about two hours, I think. It’s been a couple of weeks now.
