Hope you are well. Have not posted anything for over a month now as I’ve been busy sketching from life, something I have neglected over the years but felt was important to do. However not working on a full length drawing for so long I am shocked how hard it was to render this piece. I had such difficulty in controlling the touch and pressure of the pencil strokes that I never really got into it. Such a shame as I loved the model and was really looking forward to getting started on it. I also apologise for the quality of the digital download. It was late at night and I had to have the lights on which has given it a washed out look – the original is much darker. Hope I haven’t made your job twice as difficult for you. Any thoughts you can give much appreciated.
