Portrait of a Gentleman

Good morning friends,

this is the portrait I've been working on.
I'm very pleased with how he looks - and more importantly so is the man who asked me to draw his relative !

This has been keeping me out of mischief recently - as has writing my novel. I have much respect for anyone who writes a book - the sheer volume of writing takes such time - and I'm only a third of the way through the expected word count of a book of my genre.
I hope life's been treating you well - I've been visiting your blogs as and when I can. x

  3. Wonderfully rendered Pat. The tilt, twist of the head, the look in his eyes and the light all do wonders to this.
    And I did not know that you are onto writing a book. That is so cool. Congrats and best.

  5. You did well with the eyes and the expression, and that's the hardest part. It's looking great! I didn't know you were writing a novel, could you post about that sometime?

  6. You have been busy. Wonderful job on the portrait. I have a friend who is a novelist and the hours and reams of words it takes to complete one is staggering, good luck with it!

  13. Pat this is truly a work of art. I admire you so much for being able to tackle and do a wonderful job at portraying a person. Thanks for sharing. I can also appreciate the writing part - it takes me hours when I write my blog so I can't imagine writing a book. Have a wonderful day.
