1001 Black Men–#162

… another group portrait. I really enjoy the challenges of drawing a collection of figures, especially when the composition runs all the way to the edges of the page. This is much the same as drawing an urban landscape or even a rural landscape in that the space is defined by the objects that populate it as well as the space between and around those objects. Part of the fun of doing this type of sketch is the experience of each figure as two different images. There is a distinct difference between how each figure looks when I am drawing it and how it looks in the context of all the others. Add color, and each figure is transformed further still.
