Ballerina Drawing John Clark


Hi Matt. The image size is 5 1/4 x 8 1/4 and is drawn on Stonehenge Colors paper in the 11 x 14 inch size. I used Graphite, Carbon and White Charcoal pencils. I concentrated on the shadow shapes and the positive and negative spaces in order to get a likeness. At times I had to turn the drawing upside down to see the shapes better. I also worked on the edges as you recommended. With my skull drawing and this drawing I am working towards doing portrait drawings, something I have never had much confidence in my abilities to do. Thank you for your critiques, they help very much.
