My latest study, as I continue to learn how to draw portraits, was from a book that I’m reading by William Maughan, that I’ll be writing a book review post on at a later date.
This portrait (9×6) was drawn with graphite pencils (2H and 2B). The model was so beautiful, it was hard to resist drawing her – the study was a great learning tool and challenge for not only drawing someone who is dark-skinned, but also with extremely short wiry hair. These portrait studies reaffirm that it all goes back to form and values, and most important proper proportions.
