Man #2, with wrinkles and scruff

Anonymous Man (#2), graphite in sketchbook, February 2009

I spent quite a lot of time on this drawing, based on this photo. I’m not sure how successful this was, but it was definitely a good exercise. I have never drawn a face with so many wrinkles and I have to say it was really fun. I felt very comfortable with him as well.

On another note, this is how I’ve been feeling about life lately:

“…I shall have to dress a little better now. I know now the direction I have to go, and need not hide myself, so I shall not avoid meeting other people–neither shall I seek them.” -Vincent van Gogh (in a letter to Theo), January 1882
