Drawing Update 1: Allan ReadingNovember 23, 2016
Just a little further along on the drawing, touching up the figure some and working on the background. I was originally going to crop the page at the edge of the chair, but decided to extend the background some and add the drapes and cabinet.
Getting a light value on this textured paper is difficult. Just dragging the tip by its weight alone makes a darker mark than I’d like, so I have to go back over it with a kneaded eraser to lighten it. That makes it more tedious, but I’ll stick with it. Always like a challenge.
