I love to sketch faces but I haven't done one for quite some time. Yesterday a friend who had organised a portrait sketching workshop last weekend called to tell me how successful the event was. I immediately felt a strong urge to sketch and this was the only stored image available to me on my phone.

This is approximately 3" x 4" sketched directly in ink using Staedtler Pigment Liners 005 and 01.

Re: Jm

Not only have you caught the the expression so very well , but the touch is brilliant !
Pen strokes applied so effectively to suggest the caress of the light in such a unlaboured manner .
Sometimes I go to a books or museums in the hope of seeing & attempting to learn from masterful accomplished art work but it is not there !
Other times I stumble across it hardly recognised in less hallowed & forgotten places.

Re: Jm

That's very dynamic. I like how you've managed to catch his expression with such wide and quick strokes.
