New Portrait



Graphite on Bristol Board. Approx 8"x11"

I don't do too many portraits anymore but this was a request from a friend for a Father's Day gift. It felt good to use something other than paint for a change.

Having just finished a couple of graphite portraits, this portrait interests me. Why bristol board? Isn't it difficult to lift the graphite? Bristol board is a bit spongy. Maybe I'm buying the right stuff?

Meanwhile, I looked through your posts. you're a wonderful painter, but I am looking for portrait or figurative painters these days. I've decided to finally focus on what I'm best at. It's about time. I'm playing the last quarter!
