197 Portrait of Miles Davis


See th original here

This portrait ended up pretty jazzy – Maybe I got a little carried away. I think it’s really fun to start a drawing with a really fuzzy approximation with a light H4 pencil – this allows me to use my intuition a bit and just moving the pencil around in a “searching” manner. Then when I am satisfied with the form, I go darker – This fuzzy approach gives a pretty fuzzy drawing (fuzzy being the keyword here) – it might not be all that precise and detailed, but I like how it gets the energy into the drawing.. I’d like to get better at these intuitive drawings.

I’m not as cultured in jazz as I’d like to be be – maybe someone out there has some suggestions? Drawing and listening..
