Pfister Project / Hour Long Sketches

Well, now that I've been painting at the hotel for eight months, I've got more employees wanting to take their turn at sitting for me - which is great, but my time is running out and I can't paint every one. So, I've started doing these hour long sketches, they're quick and kind of intense, although it's my job to make it seem casual an easy.  The pressure is on when I'm making one, I have to look over the person, say to myself, "what is most important here?" and go for it.  The lines are deliberate, sure and straight to  the point, no time for small talk. And the sessions are like interviews, I ask all the questions, "where did you grow up? What was that like?" It feels like this is a more challenging way to work and I feel more gratified when I can push through it.

  1. Can’t believe you managed to sketch this in an hour. It looks great to me. I hope you’re having fun drawing people and getting to know them.
