#inaccurateportraits On the left, done with a calligraphy pen with no predrawing in pencil. These are very challenging to get a good likeness, but I do these exercises because they are very good training to improve my drawing skills. The one of Lauren sort of looks like her. The lower one of Stephanie barely looks like a person. 😅 On the right, a redo of Stephanie, starting in pencil and working in a very finepoint Micron pen. It sort of looks like it could be Stephanie’s second cousin once removed.
I’m spending my 52nd birthday at California Academy of Sciences with African penguins, a white alligator, and armored catfish, and other amazing things.
