Neil Young Portrait

Neil Young by David Meldrum
Neil Young 20130219 (Pencil on 200g watercolour paper)

This started out as a watercolour portrait of Neil Young but I just could not stop putting down strokes with my pencil. I spent four lunch breaks doing this, thats about 2 hours work in total I guess.

Lunch Sketch #6

I am getting more ambitious with my lunchtime sketching, this time I used real watercolour paper, taped onto board. The painting took three lunch breaks to complete also and not the usual one. I am trying to be more patient when I paint, I think three hours is a long time while professional portrait artists can spend one hundred hours easily on just one painting, I have room to improve my level of patience.
