Graphite and Charcoal Study of Eye

Graphite & Charcoal Eye Study - 6x6"
This is another little study I did today using graphite and charcoal on canvas.  I wanted to fully draw out the details of the eye before moving onto the over painting on my oil portrait of the same subject. I miss drawing even more than I realized!

I went to my life drawing class last night and really enjoyed the session even though I was dog tired before I got there.  So this morning I was quite eager to start this sketch.  There are just not enough hours in the day!

I will refine  this drawing a touch more so that I can use it as a reference when I am working on the oil painting as the more familiar I am with the shapes the easier it will be when I dive in with color, well, that is the hope anyway ;)
