Personality Plus-Portrait

Close ups

Graphite on mat board, approx. 8.5x5.5.

 This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. Sue did a great job of hosting this week and provided a bunch of terrific photos!

 This is Sue,. She was the hostess this week. I just had to try sketching her portrait. Loads of character and personality. The viewer can't help but wonder, "what is she thinking??".

C&C welcome. Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

 Romans 12:12  Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.


  1. This is a beautiful graphite portrait of sue! She will be so pleased to see this, dean. Amazing painting!

  2. I agree, it's personality plus and your drawing shows that off to a tee! Excellent Dean

  3. Good Morning Dean!... Happy New year!

    What a great start for 2014! Introspectively saucy... "eye-catching"?... No... fully engaging! Every morsel of pencil placed perfectly!

    "Be constant..." and pour and paint out your soul... as you have here!

    Good Painting,
    Warmest regards,

  4. If I were Sue, I would be thrilled with this wonderful portrait. I love the composition with her eyes looking at you and placement of the frame around her. Just great!

  5. Dean, your graphite work is just exquisite. I love how they come through the border outline too.

  6. Wonderful rendering. Love it.

  7. Dear Dean - this is awesome. Your drawing skills are truly excellent. Thanks for sharing. Also love your scripture verse - now if I can just do it.
    Rejoicing with hope is not hard - the patience in tribulations is more of a challenge (LOL) - Have a great day.

  8. LOVE IT! What great drawing skills you have. This is really well titled too - Personality Plus comes through in a huge way.
    I am with Debbie - it is the patience which is hard.

  9. You nailed it.... great job Deano
