I thought this was a cute pose and painted it on 12 x 9" Colourfix great, gritty pastel paper. It's wonderful for oil pastel. Two things, though, Roger is a lot more white than this and I kind of cut off the top of the painting with my bad photography. Oh well, this is today's effort, anyway. Thanks for stopping by!
I have always loved to draw the face and figure. If I'm not actually drawing from the posed model or sketching people going about their everyday lives, I'm probably thinking about it. I seldom miss an opportunity to draw or paint from life and I strive every day to capture not just a likeness of my subjects, but also the more elusive qualities of spirit, mood and emotion.
