A first


i think this may be a first for me....drawing a persons face that is. I drew him from the tv last night. Luckily he stayed seated the whole time. I used a grey watercolor pencil so it didnt scan very well. I'd love to be able to draw peoples face but they always seem so intimidating. I think I may etry drawing from magazines and photos to gain some confidence.

This is really good for a first try. When I learned how to draw faces, I practiced from photos in fashion magazines. It is easier to do a full frontal face before moving on to three quarters views and a lot of magazines have that kind of stuff. Portraits are hard; I am still working at them and it has been 10 years since I started practicing.
