This is one of my earlier A3 portraits and has a more caricature-like quality to it. Nick Cave has one of those faces that's a dream to draw. Every bit of it's interesting from his dark, brooding eyebrows to his large forehead, floppy black hair and tough jawline. But enough of my facial cooing, I had a therapeutic moment whilst doing Nick's shirt. I call it the baked bean pattern and I think it's possible to get into a mild trance when doing it. If any children are reading this I think baked bean pattern drawing should come with a mild warning. On the plus side, parents could encourage their children to do it just before bedtime as it has definate sedative qualities.
