Head in Pink and Blue; Leaning Man

Drawn Thursday, from life.

Pink and Blue is pastel over Tombow markers, brush and water on watercolor paper.

Leaning  is Tombow marker, brush and water on watercolor paper.

Each 9" x 12".


  1. I love your fly walking all over the surface style. it's inspiring me and showing my how up tight I am when it comes to these heads. So glad you're back. --These drawings have me reconsidering using watercolor papers, markers (if they haven't dried up?

  2. Love these! They seem informed by the model's character. Great lines.

  3. I'm seeing a blend of Kurt Vonnegut and Hal Holbrook as Mark Twain--guys I've never put together before, but why not. Social satire, humor, good yarns.
    I'd also never have thought of red and blue for a "head shot," but I like the drama of it.

    Welcome back!

  4. He looks a bit like Mark Twain!!!...or...then again...maybe Albert Einstein!!!

  5. Thanks, Linda and Anthony.

    Linda, I am glad this is making you want to try the markers with watercolor paper. The only caution I would give you is that exposure to a lot of direct sunlight will fade the finished product.

  6. Thanks, Katherine.

    The model seemed to be having a difficult afternoon and it showed in his face.

  7. Thanks, Banjo and Chieftess. His hair was really amazing, thick and wavy and white.
