One Last “Office” Drawing: Dawn

The Longsuffering Dawn Tinsley

This is the last in this “The Office” series of drawings. Here is the long suffering Dawn Tinsley played by Lucy Davis. She’s the gal who gives zombie impersonation lessons in Shaun of the Dead. Fun movie by the way.

I really love doing these achromatic pieces. I know most people love color, but I’m attracted to the simplicity of black and white. I think it’s because I’ve been addicted to black and white movies for as long as I can remember. But I think I need to do something with a little color to perk things up around here. But I make no promises…

Thanks for coming by!

  1. I love these achromatic pieces too – especially this one. Her expression is great. and I love hearing you talk about the pencil marks, and the watercolor (or lack of watercolor rather). It’s so nice to know I’m not the only one who can’t just pick up a pen and brush and knock something out in the blink of an eye.


  2. Oh yeah! Lucy Davis was Charlotte’s little sister Maria right? My husband pointed that out to me. I love that BBC/A&E version with Colin Firth. My favorite version.

    Glad you all liked this serious!


  3. Boy, your portraits are fantastic. I love the way you walk the line between loose and tight. It seems like you just dashed them off – perfectly.


  4. Thanks for the lovely comments. This was a fun series to do.

    I wish I could dash these off. Sadly, I have to work very hard on these. This one had five different drafts. So glad you are enjoying these.

    Karen, thanks for linking to me. I really appreciate it.
