It was 4 in the morning and everyone was a sleep but me. So I decided to draw using the materials I usually carry with me when I sketch on the train. The sketch took about 15 min., I speed up the video to half that time.
|Here is the final Drawing done in the video.|
Self portrait from a photograph I had taken earlier.
“A fine drawing by Phil May has very little detail in it, but what lines he did put down were so significant of his quality of idea that no more lines, or no more details, were necessary.” (Robert Henri)
This is a fine way of thinking about the drawing, especially for the quick sketches in the subway that I usually do, and the wash pencil lends itself to that.
