Daily Sketch: Stanley With Apple, the Sketch

So because I had long thought today’s vintage photo would make a nice painting I decided to use it for today’s sketch. It’s tiny, 5″ x 7″, and the paper is rough so the details are loose but I think it captures the composition; there are things I would change, there are always things I’d change, and perhaps someday I’ll do the larger sketch where I can capture all the details and those things I would change.

But for now, I’m very happy to see this as a sketch. To think I took that photo nearly 22 years ago, before I had done most of what I have today. 22 years ago my rendering would have been quite different, or 10 years ago or last year or even yesterday, literally and metaphorically colored by my experiences in life and as an artist, and even the quality of sunlight coming in the window.

And 22 years ago Stanley was about 9 years old, not even halfway through his 25 years.
