"Joshua 2"

14" x 16". gouache, pencil.

About two hours total, with about a week of looking at it between each hour.

Compared to the work-in-progress, you might can see that it was mostly a matter of developing the ear and nose further, as well as refining the modelling in the cheek.

"Joshua 2(WIP)"

14"x16". gouache.

First of alll, this is unfinished. I was lucky enough to have my friend Joshua come to the studio to sit for me again. And since it seems like something that might become regular, I decided to start an image that I didn't intend to finish in one sitting. So this is about an hour's work again, total.

There are parts to it that I do want to address, but I now have the luxury of being at peace with that because I can Get To It Next Time :) Also, sitting on something for a while will allow me to have a slightly different perspective later.

Also, because it's Not Finished, I didn't go through the task of multi-part scanning and sorting together. I just took a single photo; so I'm sorry if the image quality isn't crisp, etc.

Might get to work more on this Sunday.
