Joe, The Barber

I’ve had the same barber for many years. Joe does a great job. Plus, he talks soccer. When my grandson got his haircut my son had his camera ready to record the adventure. When it was my turn he apparently thought it was a good idea to record that as well. I took the photo and did a drawing on the computer and gave it to Joe.

I intended to do this study on canvas but changed my mind to use Bristol board. While I was digging through my flat file for the board I saw a book of watercolor paper and decided to try that instead.
