The first one is a really aged artists. I was concentrating so hard on each ear and the wrinkles, nostrils and eyelids, that I didn't realize the ears are two different sizes. I'm not going to erase one and even them up. I'm leaving it alone. It is a learning experience. A reminder to myself to stand back and look at the overall image before making this mistake again. That's the plan. Hans Baldung, 1516
This second one is a young fellow. Two different size eyes. Oops did it again! I love his nose. Filippino Lippa, 1487
This portrait was a sculpture, but I thought I could try to capture it in a drawing. I could not resist because of his nose. And I seldom do side views. Perfect opportunity to draw something that I did not have to match the size of the eyes or ears. Nothing had to line up.
Leon Battiste Alberti 1436
