WDE Nov 30 Christmas Frieze: The Shoppers



2 1/4 x 8 inches.... graphite and red pencil..... 1hour 45 minutes

Thought I would try a new format. Had fun trying to capture each character.
Loved the negative shapes between the figures.

You managed to capture the expressions beautifully!
And I like the contrast between the white figures and the red background

Re: WDE Nov 30 Christmas Frieze: The Shoppers

Great take on the ref photo. I love your rendering/shading of the figures and how you managed to capture each person using your beautiful style of drawing. So simple to look at but I'm sure it's hard to do. I also love the red background.

Bravo! and thanks for joining the WDE this week!
