after Fechin

This is a Nicolai Fechin (1881-1951) copy done in charcoal about a year ago. There are some proportion problems but I am pleased with the linework and the drawing as a whole, especially when looked at independent of it's source.

Nice choice. I like "Dave Malan" flavor you added to it. Bravo dood!

very confident study! And I definitely agree with Dillon about the "Malan" flavour. You did Fechin justice!

Hey, recognized this instantly--a very good likeness to the original fechin--his portraits of native amercicans are especially beautiful.
