My son’s portrait – Anna

Hi Matt, I have done this portrait on sketching paper, which wasn’t very good as too soft and too textured for too much rendering. I thought to put background first for more contrast, so I blended the graphite with soft brush into the paper but this automatically made the drawing very plain and flat so I put more values on the drawing, hoping its not overdone. Aiming to draw soft lines which looks more natural to me but then it may be too flat.. so its not easy to balance it.. matching values from colors to gray scale wasn’t easy either..

Appreciate your comments on it.


Thank you
