Graphite on Winsor & Newton Bristol Board Extra Smooth 20cm x 13cm
This is the finished portrait of Abby. It started off well, but I’m not completely happy with the finished piece – I think the darks need to be pushed more to make the highlights ‘pop’. Anyway the objection of this subject was to practise and I have certainly done that! The pencils that I used were Faber Castell 9000 and the grades – 5H, 2H, H, HB, B, 3B & a little of 5B.
Thank you to CWPhotos from the Wetcanvas forum for the original photograph.
