A few August sketches


Well, one thing I managed to do during August was pull out my “Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain” stuff and do a few profile portrait exercises, including a live sketch of my mom. First, though, was another copying exercise. Here’s the profile picture that I was copying out of the workbook, “Madame X” by John Singer Sargent:

This is the freehand copy that I made of the Sargent portrait:

And this is the profile portrait that I did of my mom, and I’d like to thank her for modeling for me:
