Drawing Ken

This portrait took about three hours to draw. I've completed 22 portrait in this series so far, and Ken is the only artist who wanted to draw me too. Ken is a fantastic artist and some of his work can be found HERE, on the website of Flinders Lane Gallery. As usual I like to leave the drawing unfinished, or should I say, finished up to a certain point. I find that an image develops in waves, and that when you add something to the work, it often follows that more details are needed to complete the next wave. Although this is not a complete drawing in regard to putting everything in, for me this is a finished stage of a drawing because the wave is complete.
