Graphite Portrait Commission of Father - James

Graphite Portrait - 18x24"

The first few layers of graphite have been added throughout the entire face, which kind of looks funny at this point, but it helps me as the portrait progresses.

 I used to draw each area more to completion but I find now I prefer to have a nice layer of graphite throughout to work into.  The ear on the right has just had a few more layers of graphite added but will likely get darker once the other values are brought up. 

This is such a nice size for a portrait as even though the photo is not the greatest quality, I can really get into each feature to add the amount of detail that I like.... plus it just looks really great from across the studio at this size :)
