August 29: The man in the hat.....

As I said yesterday, this man caught my eye at a watercolor society meeting several years ago and I asked him if I could take his picture.  I dug him out of my files of interesting faces, drew him up and took him to class.  I like my start.  Let's see if I like my ending on Thursday in the class at the Huntington Library that's being taught by Rob Sharrill.  Class got me back to painting.

And then as I upload these pictures, I see my first big mistake.  The hat is much, much bigger, taller than the head and I didn't catch that at all.  So a redrawing is in order before Thursday's class.

Darn, I liked the drawing and liked the initial washes.

I'll finish him up but boy that hat is now so irritating to look at!
