Pencil Drawing of Preston Jones (Commission)

On acid free mat board 15” x 24”

I don’t often do commissions but this one is an exception. It was a great drawing to work on; Preston has a very intriguing face, a serious, deep, gaze… a thinker and artist, but with more then a hint of kindness.

years of experience looking at things has caused me to refine my last opinion, previously i was struck more by your skill at photorealism but now i find i admire the expression and patience in your lines more.

you captured one person perfectly with a visible essence of you, the translator, still apparent.

this is so, so much more than a photograph, or a replica of a photograph, and each deviation from the line and form of the original moment or photo only adds to the drawing's excellence

basically, you're too good to make mistakes. mistakes from the tools of lesser talents are visually interesting, sure, but your mistakes capture the emotion and place of the subject better than light and silver ever could

same goes for your newer stuff too, damn

I have never been interested as a conclusion for my work to “look like a photo” now when I get a comment of that nature I do take it in the spirit it was given, as a complement. But a comment of this nature makes my day, week, year thank you, I appreciate it very much!

oh god...i guess you didn't know
well....digital cameras have been invented a long time ago for capturing reality, we don't use pencils anymore....hahaha

Gotta git myself one of them new fangled camera things you spoke of…..

The problem with a snap shot, digital or film is that it one second of time spent with the model is hardly an excursion into the mind and personality of this man. The process of drawing is the process of understanding, of observation, of becoming one with the model. It’s not just about the outcome but the journey. I

great photo is a great photo but it’s not my language drawing is.

Thanks
