Drawn to Unique People…
Whenever I go looking for an interesting face to draw, I seem to gravitate towards those individuals who exist on the outskirts of society. I prefer to draw an individual whose face is unique, tells a story, or gives an indication of the life lived.
This portrait, like all my works, is based on a reference image. The original photographer is Lee Jeffries. He and his work are well known, Mr. Jeffries is a street photographer based in the UK. I found one of his images on Pinterest and couldn’t resist the urge to draw a portrait based on his photo.
The medium is graphite, powdered charcoal, & white pencil on toned tan paper.
Thanks for visiting, have a wonderful day! – Mike
