New Drawing Started: Allan Reading

November 21, 2016

This started out to be just a sketch, but I decided to keep working on it. It has much further to go. It’s my new friend, Allan, posing for me as he reads a magazine and eats an apple.


I’m using a sheet of Wallis textured paper. The rough surface makes even a hard pencil lead as dark as a soft one, so I’m using mechanical pencils with a regular lead and a fine point, and a kneaded eraser to lighten some areas. This area in the picture above is about 12 inches square.
