Classical Head #5

December 26, 2011

3B pencil, A4-sized.

Today I worked from a photo of French actor, Christopher Lambert. I chose this shot because the photograph included all of his bald skull (photographers of bald skulls, live or sculpted, tend to crop them). This particular photographic portrait took on a sculptural quality because Lambert was wearing all-over white makeup, in the style of Lindsay Kemp. 

The viewpoint is somewhat lower than the previous ones and there is a slight turn as shown in the position of the ears (my right being much smaller than the left).
