Wow, you get a lot going in 20minutes Arto!

Thanks, Erik! It was a 30 minutes pose. At 20 mins I decided not to take the drawing any further, but instead made another quick one from a different angle. It was fun!

20 minutes wow! You are one fast artist. I love the energy of the line and the expressiveness of the sitter. Two very good portraits.
