Lunch time portrait

I seem to want to draw and paint artists that I admire. This week's offering is Alberto Giacometti. I should have made his nose a little longer and a little bigger but otherwise I am happy with the result. Normally I tend to draw very quickly so this was an exercise in patience for my part. It took 90 minutes roughly to complete.

  1. A lot of time for you drawing, but the result deserves the efort, congratulations good job.

  2. Thank you setxu! I prefer doing quick sketches, they have more life in them, more spontaneous. I'm happy with the drawing all the same, it was good shading practice.
