Eye drawing


Hi Matt,

On the back of your last critique have tried to pay attention to eliminating my harsh lines, getting a smoother transition between values and using a brush to soften everything up.  I found the use of a brush seemed to produce a ‘dreamy’ quality to the drawing which was fine but the downside was when trying to add more graphite I could sense it was going to turn to mud.  Should I have gone darker with my darks Matt or do you think my values are fairly balanced.  Feel at this stage of my journey I should know the answer but alas values is still something I struggle with.  Really looking forward to your thoughts and advice on this work.  Many thanks Jan
