Friday Portrait, Feb. 5

Today’s sitter was Elizabeth Marie, who was quite a challenge as she was actively crocheting. Walking around during one of the breaks, she realized between the red hat and red dress, “I look like a Communist!”

I did several sketches today, but they’re all a little rough. It’s good practice to work with a more active sitter, though.




The hand work was especially challenging, as they were constantly in motion and there was a lot of background texture to distract from the details.

    Good work, though.

    The worst earworm I ever had was “Bennie and the Jets”: “She’s got electric boots, a mohair suit, Oh, I read it in a magazine.”

    I was actually an Elton John fan in the “Honky Chateau” days and made the mistake of buying the Yellowbrick Road album which was just full of stuff like that.
