The Sculptor

This is shameless drawing from a magazine photo of a famous sculptor.   I'd found some nice, toned, acid-free cardstock in Jim's attic boxes that he and his now deceased wife had reserved once for their photography.   I've acquired a small Winsor-Newton travel watercolor kit and wanted to try it out on something, so this is a test.   I think I passed the test.  


  1. I love the interplay between the sculpture and the sculptor. Their faces express the joy of being created and creating. I think you definitely passed the test. :)

    1. Thank you, Joyce! The two do seem blissful in their mutually created/creating endeavor. Maybe much like life itself. Sketching from a photo is rewarding in that everybody stands still as long as you want, but at the same time, there isn't the "living" feel to it that drawing from life has. I wonder if this sculptor "sculpted" from life? That poor model!
