There isn’t a lot I can say about this sketch, other than I was passing a few spare minutes one evening. I was looking through an art book and saw the painting of Leon Bonnet that this is based on.
I’ve commented a few times about the importance of not aiming for an artwork every time you sketch – it is about practice, exploration, experimentation and for me also very much around relaxing my mind. For those reasons, I am not embarrassed to post this. Yes, I am well aware of the mistakes and inaccuracies; it isn’t posted as an example of high art though, just a lot in a sketching and drawing journey.
