Today I am confined to the house as I have a brutal case of bronchitis. So, I decided to work on the computer as well as to start work again on some past due projects.
One of which is a portrait of my little brother. I had been given a really cool black and white photo of him a couple decades ago and did a portrait of him from it. I gave it to my dad who had it on his wall until his death a few years ago. Now it hangs on my wall.
After my renewed vigor with the pencils, I’ve had a desire to re-do this portrait, to give it more life. While I won’t change the original itself, I did start a newer version of it. It should prove to be a challenge but fun. I’ll keep you posted on its progress. Here is a copy of the picture itself.
