Drawing in the Studio

 I completed my first exercise for Misty Mawn's class "Drawing and Painting Portraits" on Friday evening. I did Contour drawings - looking at a photograph of a face and drawing it without looking or letting the pencil leave the paper. What a riot! I love the crazy faces that resulted...

Then I did a 2D mask based on a childhood photo. I must have been a scary child ( ;

Then an exercise in light, shadow and mid-tone by drawing a ball and an egg with directional lighting.

It took until Monday to get up the nerve to do my pencil sketch portrait. I took about three hours and I carefully followed Misty's instructions and demonstration videos. When I was finished I was shocked. I couldn't believe that I had actually drawn this face! I am quite pleased with my first attempt and more confident to proceed with the next assignment.
