Days 40 and 41: Portrait and Nimbus
Portrait (1989) Pencil on paper.
If you were a young woman during the mid-1980's, you may well guess who this young man is. If not, well, the hair is pretty typical of pop musicians of the time. It's one of my best pencil portraits. Still.
Nimbus (2007) Work in progress - current state is a digital painting, incorporating some source photographic elements. Worked in Adobe Photoshop over a scan of the pen and ink study.
An angel, or a djinn, or some other winged, supernatural being.
For the hell of it.
