Edward Norton

Creating a celebrity portrait is no easy task. I learned this when I decided to attempt a portrait of one of my favourite actors, Edward Norton. His recent role in Moonrise Kingdom as Scout Master Ward completely captivated my imagination. After sketching over 50 studies of his face, I finally came up with one that I was happy with. I tried to capture that same vintage, yellow, filtered look that Wes Anderson achieved in the film.
