Well, i came home last night quiet tired. Had a full day’s work under my belt, and did some coaching after work. Right about the time for me to finally “tuck-in” I stumbled on to an amazing blog. It was full of charcoal drawings and paintings from a Canadian named Erika Altosaar. As i looked through her site, i was delighted by all the sketches. (Charcoal holds a special place in my heart cause that’s what i learned how to draw on) But suddenly when i was about to the bottom of the page, one of her pictures stopped me dead in my tracks. i loved the expression and the mood of the picture. You should know me enough by now to know that i kinda couldn’t resist drawing it, no matter how tired i was. So i walked up to my studio and heard the rain start to fall down, and it was sealed; i had to paint. This portrait i think is my first drawing where i sketched it completely with a brush. And it’s the newest addison to the Blogger Portrait Series. Well, i hope you like! Happy middle of the week! Oh, and check out Erika’s blog ealtosaar.blogspot.com.
