|Better likeness, but time to abandon this rough sketch.|
An accurate likeness requires a lot more measuring and more time. As sketches go, it's okay. Kissinger is gone and the real guy is starting to come through. Nevertheless, it's time to move on. The clock is ticking on my Sun Torch drawing sessions.
In the New York Times this morning, I read an astounding article on Peter Lik, a very talented photographer and ever more talented business man. His print of Phantom, below. his latest new photograph, just sold for 6.5 million, more than any other photograph ever. This is a guy who knows how to make his art pay and wasn't afraid to turn his back on traditional art marketing traditions. Read Peter Lik's Recipe for Success: Sell Prints. Print Money. ; it will amaze you--and give you plenty to think about--especially if you've decided upon art as a profession and want to make a comfortable living.
