I had a very challenging time trying to find something for the letter U that gave me the urge to pick up a pencil. After hours raking the Internet, I finally remembered a singer who’d make an interesting subject. And tried to draw him. And should really scrap this and start again.
But I liked the drawing. You won’t be able to recognize him, but it took me an hour and a half to get it this far and I don’t wanna rush the do-over. Maybe by the time I come back to the letter U next month, it’ll be ready. And hopefully you’ll recognize him then.
Bonus points for anyone who guesses who he is. Plus, my undying gratitude, and you can’t really put a price on that, can you?
I used the brown ochre Polychromos for this one, and I do like the color and wouldn’t change that when I try it again. I’m finding I really enjoy portraits. The whole human figure feels like a bit of a stretch, but I like faces, and would like to draw more of them, because if you think about it, there are so many people it would be fun to draw!
Looking forward to drawing a flower for tomorrow’s post. Maybe we can conjure up an early spring! I hope you are making something today. ‘Twill feed your soul, I promise. See you tomorrow.
