Old Men – Part One

….days 129 to 135 of 365 Days of Art

I love the lines and facial hair in old men. They’re so much fun to draw. Last week Carla Sonheim asked us to draw numerous portraits of people. We could choose any subjects that we wanted so I searched the internet for photos of interesting older men.

We were to select a variety of papers to draw on and use black markers and liquid ink. I tried making my drawings using the blind contour method but I found myself looking more and more at my drawing.

Once we created a variety of portraits we had to place them on a larger piece of paper and decide how to arrange them and which ones to use. The first shot has all seven portraits and the next one has one less. Which one do you prefer?


Not sure what part two involves. I may make my final decision when I find out where this project is going.
