View from the sofa
More TV sketches - Obama, top, and Lewis Hamilton below.
I didn't make a note of the names but these faces were on Sky News. Clockwise from top left, a lady talking about the Latino voters, a former Democrat presidential candidate, and the man who 'discovered' Lewis Hamilton as a child racer.
Still trying to do a decent sketch of Adam Boulton of Sky News.
Top, Sky Sports presenter Charlie Thomas and my fave celebrity chef, Jamie Oliver below. The purpose of these is do pare down the portraits to the bare minimum whilst retaining the essential features that makes that person unique. For some faces lines alone are enough, in others the shading is equally important (for instance the shading on Lewis Hamilton's cheeks). I'm finding it very interesting and quite addictive!
