Portrait of Joan Baez done in the late 80’s, reference was a Rolling Stones cover.I remember one of the reasons I wanted to draw this was her hands are beautiful.
One of my first portrait attempts done in graphite,
cleaned up in ps.


joan baez, portrait, graphite, rolling stones, diane johnson mosley, singer, woodstock artist, guitarist

Like most of us here, I was born to create. I am not happy with myself or others if I can’t. I am a lover of sience, fantasy and nature and I don’t think I could ever create anything as wonderous as our natural world but I can try.

    Extraordinary !!!
    In the mid ’80s, I met her pianist, Cesar, on a plane flight to Frankfurt, Germany.
    He wrote to me every now and then, I was only about 18 yrs old.
    She was beautiful, and she knew it.

  • Thank you for the comment, yes she was beautiful, Lucky you!!!
