The Stare

15 Jan



I sketched this image a couple nights ago and painted it yesterday.  It makes me think about focus and determination but also about sincerity and seriousness of attention to something that matters.  I used black/gray tones to hint at the face being that of a statue but I really wanted to convey something real, something true because I think his gaze is saying something.

    I like the square jaw and the mouth. It speaks of simplicity to me.

      Thank you. It does have an appealing simplicity.
