About the polaroid portrait.
This is a christmas present I made for my girlfriend. It was a diary and this is the first photo (I don’t have a polaroid cam), haha.
Ink, Pencil and watercolour pencil.
For more or for some portuguese poems:
Quick fountain pen portrait sketch of a member of a virtual portrait party. It one of a series that I’m doing to practice drawing with a fountain pen.
Portrait of Maytal. I used ink and drop of Inktense pencils leftover, smudged on a plastic lid I use for palette sometimes.
Self Portrait entitled, “Good Hair Day”
I had no more real materials left but an A4 paper, a Mongol #2 pencil, a rustic dusty charcoal pencil and the usual- my fingers for the smudge effect!
I was so happy with my hair this day that instead of the usual- take a photo I went for the ol’ sketch myself, haha.
Trying to get a grip on drawing with a fountain pen that I got for my birthday, I decided to start doing quick portrait sketches with it on a regular basis (preferably every day). This is one I did of Kate, a member of a virtual portrait party. Her picture in which she’s wearing a striking striped sweater and her description in which she says to be an avid surfer inspired me to give it this twist. Concerning the waves, I tried to add a touch of Hiroshige.
Mike. Is not he a good looking? I promised him a drawing. Now he is off to Saint Martin, turquoise water and white sand, so I will give it to him after he’ll be back, and I will add some lettering here.
My friend. We know each other for more than quarter of a century, share great memories, had so much fun with our exquisite circle of friends in Moscow, how many wonderful books came to me from his hands, how much delicious homemade liqueur was consumed on our intellectual parties (Lena and Mark were in science field). I used another vintage advertising pencil and ink in furry album, I got long time ago in Home Goods, it said Kim Robertson inside on the back cover in silver letters on the fabric sticker.
