Head study-same model
This is the same size as the first drawing, just the head study. It is much easier to work with a larger area, rather than try to exact a line on a eye that is only maybe half-inch at best. I have a 36 color hard stik set plus a few conte pencils. From what I have been reading, a 90 color portrait set is what is recommended. As well apparently you can put soft over hard which is where I find the challenge, so perhaps my next shopping excursion will entail finding some soft pastels. I may try incorporating some wet painting/brushing to see how that works.
As well I can see the bracelet is not hanging as it would in real life.
