Tina Steele Lindsey on Fun with Hugh Laurie


Tina Steele Lindsey
I couldn't resist doing Laurie, a favorite. 14X11 charcoal Hugh Laurie has a memorable face. House is on constantly in my home, and I've poured over his face so many times it is emblazoned in my memory. I decided to fussy him up with the idea of 1800's clothing.

Hi,

You've done an awsome job on this eyes' expression.
The slightly tilted head gives a nice touch to it.

Kind regards,

José

I "love" Javier Bardem ... The spanish actor since 1994 ;) Long time ... I would like to have that skill ...

Tina Steele Lindsey said...

Yes, I can see that. I know who that is, and as most men do has grown more handsome over time. Thanks for your comment!

House is on in my house all the time too ! Wow! this is a great portrait of him and captures that mischievous smile!

Wonderful drawing of Hugh Laurie! You captured his charisma, and quirkiness. He is certainly one of my favorite actors as well as one of the best actors out there. Well done!
