Portraits

I often draw faces with reed pen and ink in a state of rapture. Some I then rework digitally.

 

 

They are a visual echo of my encounters with other people. Nevertheless, they are fictional portraits. None of the faces has a real model. But I’ve met all of them at a deeper level. They clarify me. They help me organise and understand the impressions I gather during the day.

 

I find the grotesque more interesting to draw than the merely beautiful and smooth. 

Some portraits are available as pigment prints on Hahnemühle paper in:
