Man Looking Down – 8 June 2011

Man Looking Down - 8 June 2011, India ink and watercolor on paper, 5.5"x8"

This one is a small sketch not that complicated. Poorly named, because he’s not really looking; his eyes are closed. It’s perhaps part of a theme that I return to that’s portrayals of something approximating despair, depression, exhaustion; here’s another example. I don’t necessarily deliberately set out to portray this… but it kinda spills out now and then. Clearly the neck is unrealistic (looks like a Photoshop Disaster neck), but I didn’t play around as much with the rest of the drawing, so the curvy neck looks a little out of place.

Usually I like the splatter, but I didn’t intend that black ink drip spot on the right… oh well.
