Daily Painting Practice- 30 Self Portraits in roughly 30 Days - Day 17
When I was in High School the sketching media of choice was the ball point pen. Of course back then my subject matter was limited to sports figures. This was back before newspapers had color photographs. The New York Daily News had a great sports page that often had pen and ink figures and portraits. I can't remember the artist's name but that was my first exposure to portrait drawing. My art was born from the back pages of the Sports section in the New York Daily News and the (Jon Nagy TV program). I am old.
