Clinton, 2009, sepia pencil on paper, 10 x 8 inches
I have been trying to get back into drawing and so far it has been good. I did a quick portrait of my friend Clinton tonight, trying to get better at drawing from life. I think I captured his mood tonight, but the pencil I used was not of my liking. It was too hard and dry, the sound coming from it was like as if it was about to tear the paper. I don't do so well with charcoal or any other kind of material that's alike. I like the subtleties I get with an HB or F pencil. Lines are more delicate that way. Learning experience that's all this is.
