Ba-da Bang!

I just read that one of my all-time favorite series, The Sopranos, won an Emmy for Drama, a parting gift as the series has ended. Just what happens to the characters is left to our imagination. That reminds me of what I was taught at Art Center when figure drawing; to not outline or 'close in' the figure. It lends a fluidity and excitement to the eye to give the lines expressive weight and open ends. I'll post some figure work later to point that out better.
Kudos to The Sopranos!

Good one Janet! James Gandolfini looks like a member of my family. Kind of how my own Dad looked at that age. You always nail not only the likensses, but the public persona of the people you portraitize.
