MAN IN A BLACKSHIRT
The drawing is three fourths and a half of what constitutes painting. Jean-August-Dominique Ingres.
I think he's got a point. A really big one. So it's back to the drawing board.
Here's my latest portrait in pencil. I try to think about it as painting with a pencil. Great fun, really, when you get into it. Why not give it a go.
All you need is a sheet of paper and a pencil. And a face of course. If faces are in short supply, just look in the mirror.
