Days 10 & 11 – Sketch Portraits

Days 10 & 11 – Sketch Portraits

Day 10

Day 10 - Portrait, Red

Digital portrait, drawn in Sketchbook Pro. I played with some color. Using synthetic paint, and seeing how much I could teach myself about color work, I experimented. I am pleased with the lips and the sheen of white — I know it’s not brilliantly executed, but being able to use color and incorporate it into daily sketching is a lot of fun — and a good learning, stress-free time.

Day 11

Day 11 - Sketch Portrait

Graphite on paper. I drew this by hand because I didn’t want to venture too far away from traditional practice. I’d ideally like to be able to sketch every other practice drawing using a different method. I used 2B graphite and put down the initial lines using H. Still struggling with lips, but feel happy with the nose and the structure of the eyes. Starting light, and working to heavier gradients and strokes is definitely the way to work — my brain and hands are beginning to remember the flow. I can almost feel the features as I’m drawing them — a very good intuitive sign I wish to cultivate more.
