Pensive

 

Here’s another Baby Boomer who has kindly posed for my series of, eventually, 100 sketches of my generation. It’s interesting that the way people look when I’m drawing them is sometimes a bit different to how they normally look. Here is someone who is normally a very smiley person but you can’t keep a smile going for half an hour or so, it’s a strain. So people’s faces relax down and and show a different aspect; this portrait is quite pensive and thoughtful. I drew this in graphite in my new  A4 spiral bound sketchbook. I was using an A5 sketchbook but I filled it and thought I’d go up a size.
