I was given a challenge: to draw a portrait of Fernando Sor, musician and composer. It was an assignment gladly accepted because I do like drawing portraits and it has been a while since I’ve done one. Deadlines generally mean watercolours so all else falls by the wayside. Anyway, here’s the result. The only known portrait of Mr. Sor on the interwebs is a drawing itself. I wonder whether this is how he really looked?
Judy had a great oval frame with daffodils carved into it, which seemed to suit the romantic style of the portrait. It was well received, and may the portrait inspire its’ musical owner!
