Tommy #5
Tommy #5
(Drawing #5) I finally get up enough courage to draw his hair (a 30 hour endeavor) and without getting too out there….it is time to tell you that during this drawing and for the first time ever, I was overcome with emotion. This feeling came as I thought about Marianne and Stephen Evans and their continued love for him. Suddenly this becomes not only the most difficult, but the most important portrait I have ever drawn. (This version is not the completed portrait, as I still have to make his eyebrows thicker, eyelashes longer and add more stubble.)
