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. I haven’t been over in a while. I still enjoy your drawings. I’m reminded of the quick sketches I used to do in the park of the fellas playing basketball while I tried to get the shapes and forms of the body in motion. Did I ever show you my drawings? I wish I drew as much as I used to. I never did master hands and feet.


  2. 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.

  3. Tell him I think he looks very regal, like Hemmingway. Maybe this will encourage him to pose more. It’s worth a shot?

    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!

  5. He looks a bit like me. Just better lookin` !!
