So I am back at the easel starting a new drawing. “Die Ältesten” 9 x 12 graphite pencil on Bristol Smooth paper. I have put down a few light lines using a Pentel GraphGear 1000 0.3mm mechanical pencil with a 2B lead. My line drawing is a mess and may not make sense - but it does to me ??. I use my line drawing as a map, to not only to place the features of the face but also where I want light and shadow. Now that I’m content with my line drawing I can now add light, shadow, texture, and emotion. More to come soon!
