The Fisherman, 6×6, pastel, 15 January, 2019

Pulled this guy off of pexels.com and used a grid. Using someone I didn’t know made this less precious to paint, and the grid definitely helped keep his features where they were supposed to be. I am not sure that if you knew him you would recognize him here, but good practice and I have more ready to go.

After I painted him, I drew him without a grid. I was pleased with this rendering.
