Coloured pencil, pen and ink on Pastelmat
Reference photo kindly provided by Bill himself
I was quite shocked to see that it has been almost 6 months since I posted anything on my poor blog and that is in large because we have been renovating our house and I have been madly painting and doing lots of things other than sitting at my desk. Happily, the renovations are all completed and so I can get back to the drawing table and this is the results of my first portrait fort the year. It is 12x16 inches, and has been drawn using Polychromos, Prismacolors, Verithins, Derwent Artists, Coloursoft, Pablos, Lyra Rembrandts and Bruynzeel pencils, along with some Faber Castell pitt pens and a touch of white paint on Clairefontaine Pastelmat. A huge thank you to Judith Crown and her Father Bill for providing me with the fabulous reference photo for this artwork - he truly was a joy to draw.
