A Distinguished Head

Here’s another of the 30 minute portrait drawings I did recently at Swansea Museum. Not easy getting a likeness and a reasonable drawing in such a short time and of course I can see everything that’s wrong with it! If I was doing a formal portrait then this would have been the first of several drawings until I got it the way I like it. The sitter is very distinguished looking and I think I captured some of that with the drawing. I used Faber Castell Pitt drawing pens into an A5 ringbound sketchbook.

I’m doing another live drawing day soon with another 7 sitters. It’s part of the ‘museum experience’ I’m doing as part of the 15 Hundred Lives collective which is on until May the 17th.
