The Modfather and the Model, Paul Weller and Winnie Harlowe
The title just happened!
Here’s a drawing of Paul Weller, Modfather, music hero to many. This was done with charcoal on watercolor paper. I’m not really enjoying charcoal on watercolor anymore. I also had trouble with the perspective. Oh well, I tried.
Here’s a drawing of Winnie Harlow (Chantelle Brown-Young) pencil on paper. She’s known from ‘America’s Next Top Model’. She has vitiligo, a skin disease that affects pigmentation. I wasn’t sure if I should or could do this drawing. I wanted to do a close-up of just her face because it made such a beautiful design, but I wasn’t sure if people would be offended. I wasn’t, I thought it was stunning and needed to be done. I also wasn’t sure because I didn’t know how I would actually go about drawing the portrait.
Once I finally realized I needed to just focus on her bone structure and muscles, I got over the pressure. The skin pigmentation would be secondary. I hope I did her beauty justice.
So there you have it…The Modfather and the Model!
