pastel portraitures

portraiture_male portraiture_female
Since I am on this 'figurative' mood, I thought I post these two portraitures that I did when I'd just left the architecture school. I used to attend a once-a-week figure drawing session with an interest group at Cairnhill Community Centre in the mid 80s. Many group members are now professional artists or work in the art related field. This prompts me to wonder "if you are not selling your art, does it make you less of an artist?" or when people ask me "Is this (art) your hobby?" to me, these people have a brain as small a pea..oooops!
