Hathaway.jpg

These three charcoal portraits were interesting to draw, mostly because of how very much easier it was to get a likeness of Hathaway than it was to get a likeness of Lewis. You'd think Lewis would be distinctive: he's such a familiar face, and he's got such spectacular wrinkles! But it turns out that it's very easy to get him looking like ANY other wrinkly older man. I swear one of my drafts started out looking like William Shatner, spent way too long looking startlingly like a prematurely aged James Brian Mark Purefoy, and ended up as Columbo. Whereas every time I started to draw Hathaway, he looked pretty much like Hathaway and not like anyone else. I conclude from this that Lawrence Fox has a really weird face.

When I saw the subject and the first picture, I was trying to figure out which one was CS ...

Thank you so much for drawing these. I'm especially fond of the final one which captures how much had happened to them.

I think you really captured Lewis's eyes in that first drawing... :-)

Oh good! It is always quite a relief to draw someone and have them be recognisable!

I can't get over the adorableness of Hathaway's stick out ears :D
