For the third lesson in the Let’s Face It course, I drew a face from my imagination. The nose is rather long, perhaps because the eyes seem quite high. I need to keep practicing this. Back to basics.
I then produced a second drawing using a photograph as a reference. I am a bit squeamish about using other people’s photographs as the scaffolding for my art work without asking their permission first. I, therefore, selected a vintage photo of Evelyn Nesbit to work from. Until I drew Freya a short while ago, I had not completed a drawing in just graphite pencil for eons. The advantage of using pencil was that I was able to work on it while sitting on the sofa watching a movie with my kids. I should keep practicing with pencil ever so often I think. My rust is showing.
