Wednesday Portrait Session 2

This is a continuation of the drawing I started last week. I will flesh it out to a fully toned drawing as the weeks go on, but for now I am still working on capturing the proportions and the shapes in line.

I am itching to start in with the values: The far side of her face is in complete shadow, and the reflection under her chin is especially interesting. But I am trying to be disciplined and not rush ahead.

I erased and re-drew every mark several times today. At one point I wiped out all the features completely and began again. It's a real luxury to have the time to focus on accuracy. Eventually, it would be nice to learn to be both accurate and fast. Someday.
