Female model Jan G


Hi Matt,

 Made a big mistake on this one.  I bought a 9XXXB pencil which I used on the models trousers.  Wow it’s dark and because I did them last it completely sent the rest of my values out of kilter.   I would love to redo this picture to frame and would be interested to know whether you would have made the trousers so dark and altered the rest of the values or stuck with lighter values.  For me personally I wanted to keep her skin tone fairly light.  Also are there any mistakes re proportions, likeness that I need to work on?  Lastly confused as to why her face seems to have no form light.  Forgive me, I know you have just done a lesson on light and shadow but haven’t had time to watch it yet.  Look forward to your comments.
