Back in the day

I used to be a pretty good pencil and paper man, and particularly good at portraits (it’s a shame that particular skill hasn’t translated into 3D), but I stopped many years ago.

A friend of mine, getting on in years, and not in the best of health, has a very characterful face. I took a clandestine photo, and plan on doing the traditional portrait using pencil and paper again.

It’s been close on 30 years since my last. I hope I still have the skill.
