Just wanted to add that this is a detail shot...you have the whole head in the drawing/painting, of course.

Like it also. It holds an expression and yet comes across like a wood cut. That's art!

Thank you, Corby, TGSloth, yd, and Bill, for your very helpful comments!--I feel that I'm gaining so much (knowledge, technique, ideas) :) from posting and critiquing on this site. Yd, I can't post the entire work; it won't fit on my current scanner.

I saw your other post on Anne Sexton (very nice work), and really like your style of work here. My only crit here is the handling of his garment - it tends to make him look like one of the Star Trek crew, and not quite in keeping with Andrew Wyeth's persona. Very minor, and just my two cents worth :rolleyes:

Dear CB Carnell,

You gave me a great laugh here, and I know you're right. Thank you! I knew I saw that shirt somewhere before!:)
