Art by Jess Miller

3 sketches of Alan created with indian ink using  a metre of bamboo with a paintbrush attached to each end. The first two were 15-min monochrome sketches .

The third image was a 1 hour pose – the first marks were gently done in Wolf’s carbon, then the image worked into with indian ink and metre long brushes, then a bit of chalk pastel and finally ink again.
