Happy solar return! May your year be filled with health, joy, prosperity and sharp pencils! 🎂🎁🎈🥳🥃
I took a screenshot of last Tuesday’s portrait gestures class with Nicole to work on a slightly longer drawing. I was working from a pretty small image which didn’t improve in quality when I enlarged it, so I’m sticking to my habit of working from not-so-good references. 😈
No particular questions today. There’s a number of things I’d probably change about the drawing if I did it again, but for now it’s done and I’m mostly ok with how it’s ended up.
Photo reference: Nicole from DTO life drawing zoom
Materials: Blackwing – Matte pencil and Conté à Paris pastel 013 (white) on Strathmore toned tan paper.
Thanks as always for taking a look and giving advice!
