This is a Sargent copy that I did late in the day today. It's good here and there---but I straightened him out some...Sargent had him slightly tilted back. Well, I'll do it again...I bet I can do better. I sure like his crazy hair.
Something I've learned is that your sharpener is really important. The one on the left is a really good one. It's called a "Bullet" and it sharpens great. The Sharpener on the right has not won my approval...it chews things up.
I took a walk to Montavilla today...the Monastery looked especially pretty against the poofy clouds.
In Montavilla I had a cup of mint tea and did some contour drawings.
What about you----are you having a good weekend? What are you doing?
