Nice your still drawing , Im guessing this is charcoal , not sure as you dont mention what it is your using ... really push those values, have you tried working from Life , it really helps us to learn to see with much more scope ..
~Alexandra~ or call me Sandra!
Oops! I forgot to mention the details.
You are right lovin art!!
The reference is from a picture.
The sketch is of charcoal and the size is 24 in x 28 in.
Thanks for giving the thought of starting with life..
One thing is, I really am slow in sketching. So I am unsure how far I can go in one Life session... My friend gave her photo so that I can practise still drawing.
If these comes out well, then I end up framing it and displaying in the walls of my home!!
I am planning to start life drawing with my own fingers and toes so that time is really not a constraint (An idea I got from WC friends!!).
