Remmy portrait in progress 12
I’ve been laid up with health problems for several weeks so am behind on sharing Remmy’s portrait.
Working on the 4th depiction of Remmy (out of 6 total, counting his reflection). The one we’re calling “red-ball Remmy”. This is one of those faces that is challenging because the details are smaller than my most sharply pointed pencil!
This is what the whole portrait looked like last time I posted (April 7) before I started on “red ball Remmy” in the lower left. You see how much smaller red ball Remmy's face is than the others. His face, from the top of his head to his chin, is 1.7 inches.
The eyes are SO important in a portrait, and it’s a challenge to do them this small. I was pleased when they came out so well.
This is where I quit work for the day. As you can see, I am keeping my pencils as sharp as they can be for this work.
