Mark James


Another of the Bernhard Aaronsohn-Ari Ben Aaron pictures for "The Argaman Quintet", Mark is a very minor character in two of the books, "A Little Oil & Root" and "The Hourglass", and frankly, thirty years after inventing him to look like this (I stole the image from one of those "Teach Yourself Sketching" books), I no longer imagine him looking like this at all: far too European, where he was much more Semitic-Middle Eastern, unless that's just the 1960s hair-style.

Interesting though - to me anyway - just how many different ways there are to go about the act of portraiture, and how many times I have changed my approach along the years, as several before and after this one on this blog remind me.
