To test myself to see if I could produce a likeness. 1 hour sketch.
Unfinished. Can’t decide what to put under his head. Someone suggested making him a dandelion’s head 😉
Very fast sketch.
Quick sketch in box. My intention was to do the eye sockets in complete shadow, but I see from the photo I didn’t resist putting in some detail.

Hi Steve, you painted without priming first. Will the CB warp?
(Note from Steve: I did not see this comment when it was made, but to address the question: Don’t use cardboard if warping is a concern. CB is great for spontaneous, non-precious experiments/practice. You may be able to minimize warping by treating both sides similarly…that is, if you do 60% paint coverage on the front, also scribble 60% paint coverage on the back in the same session, to equalize the stresses on each plane as the paint dries.)
Thank you for your beautiful art.
Very full of WONDER and FEELING.
Thanks Anne Marie! I hadn’t looked at these for awhile myself…makes me kind of miss painting…currently remodeling our house and keeping up with orders for my cast raven sculptures but not doing any “self-expressive” art.
