[My challenge is to draw a face from the front page of the Seattle Times from that day.]
Today is Sunday, the paper is big. There was a cute story on the front page that had something to do with young girls in some sort of camp. The pictures didn't show the faces very well. So I perused the rest of the paper, then went back to page one. There was a little teeny picture of a very interesting looking guy. And I love the way the photo was cropped. Here he is.
I filled up my Lamy fountain pen (my fingers are inky even now) and used that to sketch him, then embellished him with layers of watercolors. I had a dark almost black behind him, and several hours later I went back and covered that with Alizarin Crimson. Much better now.
This was drawn from an uncredited photo in the Seattle Sunday Times, February 9, 2014 written by a Seattle Times writer (I forgot to write his name down and the paper has been recycled already).
