A Quick Portrait Sketch

Here’s a sketch of my husband Michael doing his duty as model. He’s such a good sport. I didn’t even have to add an obligation to model in the marriage vows. He just sees the pen and submits. In this sketch he is ignoring me and reading his book.

  1. How lovely to have an obliging hubby Mellanie. This is a really good sketch. I have never mastered the art of the quick sketch. I am more of a ponderous drawer really. I envy you your ability with the style though.


  2. MissJazz, thanks for the link to your drawings. They are charming. It’s been a while since I have checked out your photos. I must trot over there!

    cathy, I’m glad you like the sketch. It took me a long time to get used to sketching. I can be pretty ponderous myself and I had to learn to let go and allow myself to loosen up a bit.

    Paul, I will definitely pass on the message. Hemingway, hmmm, I think he’ll really like that!
