Mike is a dear friend, a wonderfully kind, intelligent and caring human being with a wicked and dry sense of humor. He is also a wonderful cook. This image is from our get together with a few other friends on Sunday, August 15th. For this day Mike brought a cheese-veggies-fruit platter to treat us all. We were very appreciative, it was all gone in minutes! I loved the double-cream brie with fresh plumbs!
The image is a quick sketch in graphite to try a new technique. Somehow I have it that sketchbook drawings ought to be quick. None of these 30…40…60… hours photorealistic drawings with meticulous layers. This is cross-hatching and done in 2 hours.
