March-April 2010, I intend to draw a different contemporary artist every day.

Today’s portrait is of Irish artist Sean Cronin. Sean is an accomplished portraitist, who has drawn striking images of his family & friends, musicians & sportsmen, and now the gang here at the Portrait Party. I like the way he’ll build up one area in incredibly realistic detail, and then give only the barest indication in other areas.

You can see Sean’s artwork on his flickr imagestream:
