The Scariest Combo

29 Oct


When I started this epic task, to draw one hundred people of my generation, the Baby Boomers, there were two things that I found very hard to draw – spectacles and facial hair and the two together were the scariest combo of all. But now, with so much practice ….. not bothered at all …….. Here’s number 88 of my lovely sitters.


There’s more of my art to be seen in my online Gallery in Artfinder, please click on the image below to take a look. Thank you.

    These boomers are so good! The drawings make me reflect both on each individual and on that whole age group.

    Amazing how lots of practice changes things. It’s often hard to convince people that they will get better if they practice. We adults can be a lazy bunch, or we just expect every skill today to come to us so easily (that’s me and my ongoing struggle to learn a foreign language).

      You’re so right. When people tell me they tried drawing but we’re awful at it, I tell them that I tried playing a guitar once and I was bad at it! I think there is a general malaise in Western society about expecting everything to come easily. I read somewhere that you need to put in 10,000 hours to become expert at something.
