Drawing of Andy Roggenbuck by nimra Drawing of Andy Roggenbuck by nimra
Hair study-Andy Roggenbuck

Pencil on board 36” x 25”

This was a real study in hair, beard hair vs. the blond hair against a dark background was a real challenge I was drawn to the model -Andy has a Northern Renaissance look almost of a young Albrecht Durer the pose heightens this, I think.

thanks for looking...../\\\

Edit....i darkened the background on the modes left (picture right) on the suggestion of Mike (Shelfcloud) it pushes it back and works better, gives it a more realistic space, thanks Mike!
