This young man gets first prize for the best sitter of the year, he remained completely immobile for the 20 minutes it took me to do this sketch.

This is a charcoal I did from a beautiful photo of a lovely girl from Banladesh named Meher. She is the sweetheart of the young man who gave me the job - Mehedi, studying in London.

Two charcoal portraits I drew live at The Treaty Centre in Hounslow. Both real gentleman from Rumania.
The spiky one Alex Szakacs, I got pretty good, the one with the cap Ionui Martac, I succeeded with the features but got the shape of his head wrong, the cap is too big which lead to the mistakes that followed with the top of the head too large and the jaw area too pointed. If he is reading this blog, please get in touch and arrange another sitting - at half-price! So that I can have another go.
