chiaroscuro


This one was actually on the Lisbon-Braga trip. It was night, and the carriage was much emptier then. He was the only subject around and I couldn't get a straight angle on his face, so I had to draw his reflection on the window instead, which gave him a sort of chiaroscuro look. I believe he spotted me once or twice but we didn't speak. From his furrowed brow I could see he was concentrating on something, so I just let him be...

He was a curious looking fellow with a slightly mad, slightly lonely aspect. I wondered where he was going, all alone. I had the impression he was wondering the same.

Muito provavelmente pensava realmente o mesmo que tu... Pela expressão, parece... Muito bom, o desenho e CERTAMENTE muito parecido...

Olá Inês :)

O modelo também ajudava, já que

dava-se a uns ares muito dramáticos :)

E o comboio é mesmo um sítio excelente para desenhar....

Obrigado pelo teu comentário! Vai passando por cá, deve estar a sair uma fornada de desenhos novos nos próximos dias...

Um abraço
