Portrait Drawing: Phil (Charcoal 24 x 18)
It was VAC's Portrait Studio Day. We had two models: a lady and Phil. After I accidentally dropped in at the basket weaving group and painted Phil last time, he became interested in our portrait studio. I introduced him to Trudy, our Studio organizer, and he offered to sit for us this morning. His features and style made it a great fun to do a portrait, so I set up to draw him again instead of the lady. Honestly, I haven't drawn in charcoal for quite a long time. I simply wanted to have a change, especially I painted Phil once. It turned out to be quite acceptable, at least to myself now.
