Just trying something different with a portrait.
Most of my work is experimental because I am self-taught and didn't make any attempts to produce anything until after retirement. It may seem funky, but to me art is what you feel. I was trying to find a new way to do portraits, rather than just focusing on a face. But I will continue doing just faces. Later this week I will post one I'm finishing of Sammy Davis, Jr.
I've tried doing portraits with watercolor but I cannot get the face colors right and end up losing all detail. I really enjoy drawing with a pencil because it is so portable.
UPDATE - I think the player's last name was Taylor. I didn't know him and had never heard of him, but when I read his story after he was murdered, I was overcome with grief. I couldn't get him out of my mind. I saw strength in him and mountains represent strength to me.
