Practice – Slanted Head Drawing


A quick practice drawing today of a slanted head:   graphite pencils 2H and HB on sketch drawing paper.  Going forward I’ll pay attention to proper proportions, forms and correct value placement and expect my learning curve to get real steep – which is what it should  do.

Today I was having fun, but can see areas that should have been measured so  .   .   .  actually I was really procrastinating from finishing my oil pastel rock studies, only three more to go!

Have a nice evening ~

    such lovely, touching and amazing!

  6. Lovely, lovely work, you captured perfectly her emotions which is a lot more difficult than getting the proportions right! Beautiful study!

      Thanks Eva! There were some aspects that gave me a good challenge in this study, like the tilt of the head – I think it’s learning something new in drawing that intrigues me with these studies.

  7. This one reminds me of Modigliani! I have a sneaky suspicion you’ve been bitten by the portraiture bug, Mary….go…go..go….the rocks can wait…they’re not going anywhere.:-)

      Thanks Cynthia, really appreciate the compliment. I think you are right and I can’t explain why all of a sudden portraiture has become a center of interest for me – very odd, but I’m going along for the ride. Rocks? What rocks!

    Learning and having fun, always a good thing!

  9. Mary, I really like this. She looks like a person who has had some tough times but your portrayal does make me wonder where she’s been and what she’s been up against.
