Jon-Erik in Pointillism & Crosshatching--Art by Charles A. Vorster, 2010
A simply beautiful drawing a fan shared with me. He had over 40 scans of his progress and I said wow, this deserves a slideshow! Pointillism style takes a lot of patience and talent. The artist told me that once the ink hits the paper there's no going back. My sister once drew one a few years ago of actor Clancy Brown in pencil and I was amazed then too. You can see that here.
When I told Charles my idea for a slide-show and asked for a song he recommended 'Sleepy Shores' by James Pearson because it was a hit when he was born and it is beautiful piano. I can just imagine Jon-Erik playing this one. It's lovely.
