Working man #7


Today´s worker. Feels good to work in a series like this, I seldom do. I discover little things every day; other ways of doing the folds in the clothes, how to work with the shadows in the faces... I should probably do this more often, with other subjects.

10 x 15 cm, pencil and watercolours on Canson Montval watercolour paper, rough grain.

I read your first post on these working men pictures. You seem to be capturing their expressions very well. Why can't they be called a portrait? What is the difference?

The limited palette also helps, makes for a great series.
