A face a day (12): farmers
Some more quick portrait sketches, (from the Drawing Lab book, a face a day exercise) some better than others. I´m practicing doing pen sketches with no pencil pre-sketch - so every mark is final! I´m also practicing doing it fairly quickly like an on-the-spot sketch, rather than the larger portraits that I spend hours on. The sketch above and the larger ones below are about 1.5 to almost 2 inches tall and are done with a very fine 0.05 technical pen. The smaller ones are about an inch tall.
The sketches are of photos of famers in the Station Country book, about farming throughout New Zealand. The farmers tend to be outside in the photos, squinting into the sun!
