My friend Roger posed for the Monday drawing group last night. I got quite a nice painting out of the evening, though I am not sure how good a likeness it is.

One thing I tend to do, and am criticized for, is cutting off the top of the head. Sometimes it makes a more interesting composition.

I like it, and I don't mind the head placement: perhaps because we can't see the tops of our own heads, the portrait seems more engaging and sympathetic....In other words, it draws me in.
