Life Portrait of Chuck by Dominic White

Maine folk music legend Chuck Romanoff sat for today's portrait group. He was a great model. One of the most still we've ever had. It makes seeing the subtleties of the structure of the face so much easier.

Drawing from photographs is good practice, but nothing beats drawing a model from life. That's why there's so many portrait sketches and so much portrait practice on this site.
