This is one of my drawings from a photo I found on Pixabay that I did about a year ago after I had been drawing for nearly 2 years.. I felt it was one of my better ones and spent over 6 hours on it. Looking at it now I think the value contrast could have been stonger. I would really love to be able to draw portraits from life rather than photos and hope this site will help me.
I am just on the verge or retiring and hope to spend a lot more time drawing. and being older I have a lot of catching up to do!
