Welsh born artist and illustrator Stuart Whitton is an advocate of traditional mediums, specifically graphite. And whilst there are plenty of incredible graphite artists around, Whitton’s subject selection and his portraits are what stood out to me. Specifically the portraits that are overlapped with cloth. It’s a known fact that cloth is one of the hardest subjects to draw, to then combine this with portraiture is quite the display of creativity and skill. You can see a few of my favorites below.
