I’m not sure how many hints I should give for this one. His face is pretty distinctive, making it much easier for any artist to draw him! (Try him and you’ll see.) He is an American actor, still living. I believe the photo reference came from a 1970 film (but I’m not sure). It took me over two hours to do with a brown ochre Polychromos (and I note this because on the Stonehenge cream colored paper, it was the perfect marriage of paper and medium. I don’t wanna forget this color.)
I drew another quick sketch of him in about 15 minutes just over a month ago, in graphite. It was a more current photo, and I’d say it was off the film set (but again, not positive, sorry). Anyway, here’s that drawing:
He has lots and lots of frown lines! Oh my goodness, he is the King of the Frown. 🙂 Which made him fun (and fairly easy) to draw. Seriously, try it! It is so much fun to draw people. Especially if you go into it saying “Here goes nothing.” What have you got to lose?
Tomorrow, I’m taking a little break from portraits for some watercolor fun. I’m thinking of it as a little March Dance to Make Spring Come FASTER. hehe. We’ll see if it works! Time to get those art supplies un-squirreled away and play! That’s what Sundays are for. See you tomorrow.
