"Alfred the Flowerman" duo drawing

Alfred sat for the Goward House Portrait Painters today. I used watercolor and Conte pencil to stretch myself again. I like this approach because the early washes show me the way and the heavy pencil gives me the punch. The color sketch is OK but I really like the little drawing which is a better likeness I feel. You could click the image if you want to see a larger picture. (My fellow artists might also tell you that working in different media actually strengthens one's home style).
