Paul by francoclun Paul by francoclun
New drawing, is a commission, but I was pleased to draw the good Paul Newman, one of the greats old of the movie world. The drawing has been made with pencils on my beloved Fabriano Artistico watercolor paper, 300 gr. Hope you like it. Thanks in advance for the watches and the fav :D

i attempted the same drawing many years ago, i didnt finish it. il fool myself into thinking mine would of turned out exactly like yours.
i would be confident that if i were to give it another go, id make a better job of it.
but after seeing your brilliant drawing, i dont think il bother... ha.....this drawing is faultless. the eyes are superbly done. and as for the hair...... which is always difficult to do.... amazing. you can tell just how much bryl cream he's used..... god only knows how long it took you to nail it...... but you certainly did........ well done
What do you think?

I've probably already said that, but sir, you never cease to amaze me. And I'll probably say that same sentence again and again...because I never have any words to describe how brilliant your artworks are. And I also love him so much. *-*
