About MeI've been drawing off and on 30 years, My Fascination is the Human Face, I've drawn Friends family, total strangers in the Cafe; for the last 5 years my work has largely focused on Cafe drawing, and the uploaded photos are examples of that work.
I've reached a point where to grow, and do more original work, it makes sense for me to begin working with professional models; I am interested in doing some work set in some of the beautiful parks in the area, and some staged Cafe pieces in the appropriate setting on off hours; drawing and/or taking photos (your welcome to share).
For me the photo is never the finished work, only a promise of a finished work. I have a love of graphite, how it feels in ones hand, how it looks on the paper, little subtleties that in my less capable hands the camera seldom pics up; but I believe I might learn how to better communicate my work through contact with members of this forum.
I am hoping to produce a display “A Portrait of Frederick” for next years Art O Matic, if you are interested in being part of this project, or working with me otherwise over the next few months, do let me know. The very best way to contact me is through yahoo mail. Blackbird_61@yahoo.com
