" I'M WAITING "



5 x 5 Ball Point Pen

This is one of the pictures James Parker posted on his website Windows to the Words Art. It is a photo submitted by Maggie Mayer, I believe his name is Laid Back. Everyone can join and paint one or more of the pictures and they will be displayed there.
The deadline is completely past ( July) but I saw this beautiful lab done by a few artist I know and I am partial to a beautiful face like that.
So here is my version. I enjoyed drawing him.

Thank you, it feels easier to me than acrylics.

Vern Schwarz said...

Wow, what a great drawing Dominique. Those soulful eyes must be so difficult to do in pen (one shot only), and these are wonderful.

Vern,
It kind of funny because it's only now as you put it that I realize no fixing possible with this medium. I think it forces me to let go. Thanks, happy you like it.
