Gathering his thoughts...

Face no.5 of my 29 Faces for May
ZAC
This one is literally a 5 minute sketch with charcoal, done while my son was "gathering his thoughts"
It isn't a marvellous likeness, but for me it was an exercise in live sketching :D

  1. Looks great, and its all about the practice. I can't draw from a live subject at all, i need a photo.

  3. 5 minutes? I think it takes me longer than that to even start. :)) Great portrait!

  4. Wonderful! And those quick sketches are great for capturing those transient expressions … and nurturing technical drawing skills too.

  5. It would take me longer to look at the face Gina, let alone draw it in that time. Well done.
    Have a great weekend.
