Here's another version of my jivin' characters in a larger format than usual, 9 x 12", on Bristol board paper. Roger, my able assistant, is sitting in the chair with me and it's really crowded, but he insisted - I just hope he doesn't press 'publish' before I'm ready! I used an ink marker with a thin point, then scribbled the colors onto the figures. There's a little bit of charcoal here and there, too. Thanks so much 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.
