This drawing of Gene and the next 2 were done at the Malden Sketch Group on 7-7-11. I had previously done several sketches of that night's model so I decided to draw pictures of the artists in the room instead. I can only hope they didn't mind having portraits done while they were working. People tend to screw up their mouths, squint and make funny faces while they are doing portraits... a result of their intense concentration. These 3 men all did wonderful portraits that night.
