Left: 8.5 x 11 inch sketch of Ed Asner (as he is now) on a TV commercial for the old Mary Tyler Moore Show. He was playing his character Lou Grant in the commercial. Pentel Pocket Brush Pen on cream Stonehenge. The PPBP feels great on this paper. Click on the image to view an enlargement.
Asner has a fantastically interesting face—the lines of it, the flexibility of it.
Part of me wanted to paint this sketch after I finished it. Stonehenge is quite fun to paint on, especially with gouache.
But the other part of me said stop, you've done enough.
Which is sort of true of this post too, given the title.
