031 – Charles Darwin

Charles Darwin

Charles Darwin, born 12 February 1809. I made four attempts at drawing the portrait without looking at the page. I’d never tried this before and I think it’s interesting how the drawings improve with practice and how similar they are – especially the eyes. It seems that you can have an identifiable drawing style even when you’re effectively blind.
