Roland, Henry, Me and Them

Two relatively quick face studies from last week. It was while I was doing these that I realised that what Henry Moore once said was true; to draw is to take notice. Not so much that I always know any more about the people who I draw but that through looking with intention, the uniqueness of that person is shown in what we call a likeness. I think what makes a piece work, is what Roland Barthes says is 'outside the frame' the input from the artist long before the pencil reaches the paper.
