In my "Drawing a Head" class last week I did three heads, two in pen and ink and one in pencil. Click on an image to see a larger version

I think all my studies of Whistler etchings during May's Whistler Month had got me in the mood for pen and ink and fine line drawing. I really enjoyed doing them and they went really fast. The chap with the dreadlocks took about 45 minutes and the two views of the female model took about 30 minutes each.

They are all quite large, approximately eighteen inches x 12 inches - I find it easier to draw fast when drawing large than when drawing small. How about you?
