two portraits of nick

We finally had a module of Head Drawing that required us to take our own photo reference, to practice 3/4 and side lighting for portraits. Nick was very patient as I adjusted the camera and lights a thousand times to take two rounds of photos before they were improved. Each of these drawings took me about 4 hours to complete, using sanguine & white pastel pencil on tan “velvet gray” charcoal paper. Looking at them now, I could probably take more evenly lit photos of the final pieces, but generally I am happy with the likeness!
