approx. 13×14″ – graphite & charcoal on newsprint

Talk about a pain the butt. I worked on this one for about three hours and just couldn’t get it right. One look at it and obviously the head is way too small. And I redid that head four or five times and never could get it right. In the words of Da Vinci, “Paintings are never finished, they are abandoned.” And I am abandoning this one.

I’ve already decided on my next drawing and I’ve also decided to go “old school” and grid the thing out. I’ve used the grid before and it works, so I’m going to do it this afternoon for the next drawing. Let’s see how that one comes out.
