A Portrait in Pencil after a considerably long time.Old and wrinkled faces always attract me.This woman's intense gaze made me select her for a close up.So far, about five hours spent on it.
16" x12" mechanical pencil 0.7
Drawing kids' close ups is a lot tougher than I had thought! They have smooth, flawless skin and every single mistake shows ...like smudging in some areas due to contact with my hand/palm in this drawing! It was on my board for many days, after all! Will have to be more careful in future.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I did....
