Here's a portrait I did of Pete Suart, a friend from my student days in Brighton.
I used wax crayons for the highlights before applying the blue watercolour washes.
I think this picture certainly reflects aspects of the subject's intensity.
Back in the 1980s, Pete was a terrific artist but he was also deeply involved with music.
When I last heard from him, Pete was living in Hong Kong where he was recording and performing very avant garde music.
It's great that after so many years, I am now getting back into life drawing and portraiture in a big way.
