A Pet Portrait 'Quick-Sketch'
(sepia conte pencil and white pastel, 16x12 inches)
This is what I call my 'Quick-Sketch' portrait, which at certain events I do from life in about 15 minutes (human subject, that is!) or from a good clear photo in about 20. Below is photo of my easel at the mall last month, showing how technology can be convenient! (That's my iPad on the left!)
You can see how I tried to reduce the effect of the wide-angle distortion in the photo.
