Back to Basics…

Just keeping it simple

Just a fairly quick portrait I did a few nights ago.  For this one I went back to one of my smaller sketchbooks, this sketch is on 5.5″ x 8″ dotted paper.   The medium is graphite with just a touch of white gel pen to bring out the highlights on the glasses.

Thanks for viewing, I hope everyone has a creative day!

    1. Thank you for your kind words, but, I can’t take credit for the expression. I used a reference photo for the sketch. The photographer captured this man’s expression so well. That’s what drew me to the photo and inspired me to draw this portrait. Thanks for visiting my blog, I hope you return often. Have a wonderful day.
