|Graphite Pencil Nose Sketch|
This is a little study I did this morning of a nose which I plan to use as a reference for my grisaille oil painting tomorrow. I am breaking things down into baby steps so I spend more time happy and less time lost, that is the idea anyway!
So I re-learned an old lesson I thought I had learned years ago, don't use waxy transfer paper, argh. I have been cleaning out my studio and just grabbed a piece of transfer paper rather than using my home made transfer paper, this is just a study after. Well that was my thinking, of course I spent more time trying to blend the transfer lines into the finished study than I did drawing ;) Several of the lines still show, hopefully I have learned this lesson for the last time...yes the transfer paper is now in the garbage :)
