[art] Another Diary Portrait: PDX Mayor Sam Adams

2603.Yesterday at the Belmont Branch Library I did another drawing, this one based on another photograph. This time, it's a well known photograph of a well-known personage in this town: Mayor Sam Adams.

Sam Adams 1

Some liberties were taken around the background, but I think I came pretty close here.

And closer:

Sam Adams 2

I know it's not perfect either (the line of the mouth and the shading were a bit tough to hit), but I like the way I was able to pull this one off. I'll call this one a success.
