I drew this guy at the market today. I used my pastel pencils for the first time. The reference photo was from a friend.. So, I drew it outside my house, and this is something Hey.. :D I am so tired I can't draw anything else today. I was up at 4.00am, and I didn't get home until 6.00pm. I am tired and sore. I did paint two little frog paintings, I will photograph them tomorrow and post them. I quite like them for a change..
I didn't realise until after I had photographed this, that there is a watermark on the edge of the paper. Just as well it is a practice drawing.. This pad must have gotten water damaged, the time I was caught in the rain storm at the market.
The highlights in his eyes. I could not for the life of me get the white pastel pencil to work on top of the darks. No way was it going to show up..:( I forgot to take a pencil sharpener too, so couldn't sharpen the darn pencil either.. (makes not to put sharpener in market bag)
