Drawing and sculpture are my usual choices for depicting faces. On occasion, I delve into a color medium like pastel, if the subject can best be depicted in that way. This is an informal pastel sketch I did of my friend Del Robertson. I felt that color was needed to reflect the rosiness of his cheeks that says so much about his Scottish heritage.
Del served for many years as a police officer in the UK and certainly qualifies as a “good guy” in my book. It was a joy for me to personally deliver the drawing to his precious Scottish mother, Betty, on her 80th birthday. She was quite “chuffed” as Del would say.
