Portrait Pratical

Once again I am trying to actually do something with my blog (I find it very difficult to bring myself to say blog) and I really don’t know if this even gets looked at so I hope I’m not talking to myself as that is the first sign of madness, I’m told.

Anyway I’ll carry on in the same way I like to shout at nobody in a bus station. Since I have some spare time I am taking the opportunity to practice my drawing skills by drawing a series of portraits (outside of all the other charming aspects of running freelance business). Something I haven’t done for a while.

I am largely focussing on hair, which is the only thing I am referencing as well as making a big effort to draw a wider variety of expressions. I have ordered The Artist’s Complete Guide to Facial Expression by Gary Faigin which is apparently very good and has a picture of a smiling man on the cover.

Here we are so far..

Feel free to say hello or shower me with undeserved praise.

Cheers,
