Drawing a Head: 16th March 2006

I was so disappointed with my efforts on Thursday night at my "Drawing a Head class, that I didn't look at my drawings again when I got home until this morning. And while I didn't manage to achieve what I set out to do the drawings are maybe not quite as bad as I thought they were. So, feeling brave, here they are.

I'm drawing in pen and ink in the first - using a Pilot G-Tec-C4 with a 0.4 point. The face is much too long - I'm obviously displaying a Modigliani tendency even when the sitter isn't.

The second is drawn using a mechanical pencil using HB plus a Faber Castell clutch pencil with a 4B lead - and is better - but the proportions were still out. Interestingly, I think other people may have had problems catching the likeness as well as there was more variation than usual in the class drawings at the end of the evening.

  1. These are both wonderful, but I really like the top one the best.
