This is an old drawing I did for practice. It's based on a figure from the 1945 Norman Rockwell painting, "The War Hero." That is a very "busy" painting, though very good. I just wanted to try to capture the expression of the little boy. Sorry about the poor quality of the scan, and as you can see, the drawing itself hasn't fared too well over the years, either. Jana Botkin, one of my readers, suggested I post a drawing...so here it is.
I don't draw these days like I should. I used to draw all the time. Mostly I just rough in a sketch on my canvas and get into the painting. But I've been thinking about getting back into drawing more. Maybe I will and post some of them here or on my other blog.
