Weekly Photo Challenge: Face

face ii

Paul Schofield in The Captain of Köpenick (1971)

face iii

Laurence Olivier in The Dance of Death (1967)

Drawing the faces of these two giants of the English stage revealed to me the power that they could generate with either a distant glance or thunderous frown. Both of their performances live on in my memory as unforgettable evenings in the theatre from many years ago.
