I’ve been really struggling to maintain any kind of consistency in my drawing these past few months. I’ve had some good days, but I’ve had some truly terrible ones too. This portrait is an example of a bad day – everything about it is wrong. The features are all “not quite right”, the head is an odd shape and the hair is just lazily drawn. Some of this is because of time pressures- the need to fit drawing in between work and family time. So I’ve decided that, after almost three years of drawing daily portraits, I’m going to stop. I’ll continue to draw portraits, just not daily, probably only on the days I’m not working, when I gave more time. I’m hoping that by taking the pressure off myself, I’ll be able to focus more and find some form again.

Rafael

Today’s face: Rafael, inspired by Sktchy. A very rare portrait without any pen lines … just trying it out to see what I think. It looks/feels kind of naked to me but I think that may just be because I’m so used to those black lines.
