Drawing of Steve Parkhurst by nimra Drawing of Steve Parkhurst by nimra
Face study-Steve Parkhurst

Pencil on Strathmore 500 cold press illustration board
22 x 22

Once in a while the best laid plans go off track. The background the very thing that inspired this drawing took over -it slowly overshadowed the portrait. There is enough power in this face, a contemplative man in his middle age, just like myself. Thanks Steve for sitting for this and for having the interesting features to give drama to this study. I worked about 30 hours on the background which was on the left but after making the hard decision to cut it off, it made sense.
Thank you all for you questions and comments

Is it possible to see the background that you cut off?
