A Face In Steps [6]

11 Dec


At this stage, I’m working up the hair in black and adding some darkish tones in sanguine with conté crayons. I’m working onto brown wrapping paper, I like the effect of it. It’s a shame it doesn’t last, it will fade and fall apart in a few years, but when I use expensive paper for drawing I often find it very inhibiting and can’t get the faster, looser, more experimental effects that I can with wrapping or newspaper.

This is a life drawing I did at Swansea Print Workshop last week. I photographed it at different stages so I could look back on how I developed the drawing.


I am putting a new drawing of an ancient monument one up every day.  If you want to buy one, you can see them by clicking on the image below or the Artfinder link at the top right of this page.

    Wonderful build up. Each of the drawings stands alone, but great to see the development
