When I’m drawing Baby Boomers, I let people choose how they will sit for me, whether to look straight ahead, or off to one side, or up, or down. It varies a lot. This sitter looked directly at me but because he’s a lot taller, there’s a surprising amount of foreshortening on his face, with a much larger jawline than there would be if we shared the same eye level. It makes him look much sterner than he really is. He had some cool reflections in his specs too.
Tea with me at The Workers Gallery – a chance to see my new solo show with lashings of tea and home-made cakes in the gorgeous Cynon Valley.
