Portrait illustrations

My latest illustrations have improved from earlier work. This quick sketch came out like a simple logo. The line work is incomplete, and I had some problems with the source image.

There are wisps of grey storm clouds co-mingling with the sun- perhaps to ultimately overpower it. There is… Read more Blue Ocean Acrylic on Canvas
