The photographs coming out of Japan are really heart breaking. The people of Japan are enduring extraordinary tragedy with dignity, intelligence and resilience. I admire what I see. I tried to capture the essence of some of the riveting faces I’ve seen in magazines. I have been sketching using my aquabrushes and wet media sketchbook. Here is the first sketch I’ve completed. I was fascinated by the humanity of the woman clutching the rag to her face. I wasn’t sure if she was crying into the cloth or clutching something that had meaning for her. The photo was on the cover of Time magazine this week. I have made minor changes for my sketch.
