|'Anthony Hopkins' 9”x 10” graphite on Strathmore Drawing 400 Series|
I love to draw and sketch and this was a perfect opportunity to go back to what I enjoy. I often feel to rigid and tight after completing a portrait that can take 25+ hours to complete.
I was drawn to this photo because of the opportunity to capture a likeness of a famous actor, angles, and light and dark. The emotion on his face was rather interesting and a sketch would be a great opportunity to explore and have fun.
