I sometimes think there is nothing so delightful as drawing.
– VINCENT VAN GOGH (1853-1890)
Every now and then I need to remind myself how much fun it is just to draw.
To play with line weights, angles and curves, shading. You know ... just draw.
Here’s an easy way to do a pretty accurate drawing for a portrait: if you look closely at my drawing you’ll see very light lines where I divided the board into thirds, across and down. Then I used this grid on my reference photo, and drew Bailey on a 6x6 Gessobord with a No. 2 pencil. Nothing fancy, but a whole lot of fun!
