Owen's New Haircut

Owen surprised me when he agreed to sit for me on Christmas. 
And to sit [almost] still for me.

Dark Red Lyra Rembrandt with white Stabilo CarbOthello on toned tan

I can see where I should go back and lay on some darker values in the shadow side of his face. At the time, I was too fixated with giving him a hand and not a claw! So...revision might soon as the furnace gets fixed. The wood stove makes normal daily stuff possible, but house temps in the 50's have me reaching for the hot packs instead of the drawing pencils. I would not make a good plein air winter painter.


  1. I think this is your best yet! I'm sure using a live model has helped. Your subject looks alive here. Well done!

    1. Thank you so much! Drawing from life is way preferable to drawing from a photo.
