I recently discovered Reddit. Then, far more interestingly, this morning I discovered Reddit Gets Drawn (hat tip to Thomas over at One Drawing Daily for mentioning it), a handy community wherein people basically offer up photographs for you to have a go at drawing – great for practice, especially if, like me, you’d rather not constantly be doing self-portraits to that end. I had a lengthy browse, and there are lots of potentially fun drawings, but this one immediately caught my eye, not least because our subject is soaked. The wet look is, I feel, another one of those rather ominous features that could make or break a portrait. Moreover, I don’t think I’ve ever actually tried to capture it, before, so, feeling slightly bullish, I had to at least have a go. I hope you like it!
