I woke up in the middle of the night and couldn’t go back to sleep.  After a couple of games of solitaire on my iPad I decided I would draw something. I did this sketch of long ago actress Norma Shearer.

A Friend’s Grandson

I did this sketch a few years ago for a friend of mine. It’s her grandson when he was about three. I did a second drawing of him later. It’s posted at: http://sircolby.com/drawings/second-base-runner/

Lili Damita

Filed under: DRAWINGS,Portraits — Colby @ 12:52 pm

Surfin’ the tube and came across an old movie, Captain Blood, starring Errol Flynn. He was one of my favorite actors so I looked him up on the internet. In that search I discovered Lili Damita, one of his three wives. Watched the movie with my iPad in my lap and started this sketch. I didn’t get through and after a slew of interruptions I finally finished it after several days.

I had a completely different plan for this drawing but almost immediately realized it wasn’t going to work. It might have had I started on gray or colored paper. But, oh well. Here it is.
