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.
