Mr Headphones

Who is this man? He’s a city resident, who walks through Government Avenue often. I was inspired to sketch him because of the expressions on his face while he listens to music. The expression on his face is determined by the asymmetrical design of his eyes and his narrow mouth. The well-lit face is framed by badly behaved hair, accentuated with restless brush-strokes and scratches.

I drew this portrait with mixed media – wax, paint, charcoal and pastels.

My friend, Sarah, bought this picture – here it is framed and hanging in her flat.
