My fishing buddy

This is a loose 9x12 drawing of my friend Ralph on Strathmore's Toned Grey paper. He's a great guy and lots of fun to be with. C&C welcomed and appreciated. Thank you for looking.

Re: My fishing buddy

I really like the casual tilt of his head. It says, "I'm really into fishing and having a few laughs."

Re: My fishing buddy

Thank you Pam, Ginny and Karen for your nice comments. I thought the tilt gave it a feeling of motion. When we're out in the boat together the boat rocks back and forth. So I was trying to capture that feeling. I've also colored his face a little red because we are expose to a lot of sun.

Re: My fishing buddy

We get a real, honest sense of Ralph's personality in this portrait, Bob! I imagine it might have had a different feel if he had been wearing a suit and tie.

He looks like a friendly person. The tilt works fine and I think you achieved your goal in this portrait.

Re: My fishing buddy

Donna I agree completely. He would have definitely been out of character with any other attire than fishing gear.
EstherThank you. It's nice when a plan works out. I may have him tilted a bit too much. I had thought to crop the drawing so that he tilted less.
