Graeme in Profile

 Graeme Drendel, 2018, red and brown conte, charcoal pencil and white pastel

It's good to draw with different mediums as it can keep the brain fresh. Of course I've been influenced by the red chalk drawings from the Renaissance. Sometimes I wish I could do a painting from a drawing, but whenever I've attempted it, the results are never to my satisfaction.

As usual, this drawing took just over 3 hours, and at the end I asked Graeme to re-pose for a photograph of his sitting, which is why his hands are in a different position to the drawing.
