These two marker drawings of people, one of an old man and the other of a young woman, were sketched in the year 2003. Each portrait focuses on the face of each person, using a limited palette and opaque colored lines to recreate a likeness on paper. A white paint pen was also used for highlights. The stark colors add a cold and rigid feeling to these portrait drawings, even though the marker lines are kept fairly loose and energetic. Tension is also created between the upbeat style of drawing and the melancholy look on the old man and young woman’s faces.

    Hi jazz streater,
    I encourage your interest in art! These drawings took about 10-15 minutes each. However, it took many years to develop confidence and skill in expressing myself through visual art.
