As practice for the model sessions, I sometimes draw heads whenever the mood strikes. I encountered Fantin-Latour’s portrait today at the National Gallery and decided to make a drawing of it. My first version was very summary and quick (below). Afterwards I made the more detailed version (above).
And earlier, ahead of my meeting with Fantin-Latour’s girl, I made a drawing after a Julia Margaret Cameron photograph.
At night, watching an episode of House on Netflixs I made a quick drawing of actor Omar Epps in his role as Dr. Foreman.
Another more generic drawing, but again from Omar Epps in the scene:
Different media, different approaches, lotsa practicing.
