Detail of a Head

Charcoal, Conte and White Chalk
@ 8" x 12"

This drawing was a failed start.  But, this detail is nice.  I'll try it again tomorrow.

Nu Ts. I hate drawing errors! The problems here are: eyes a little too close together, and the infranasal depression is off to the side a bit.

But, I did like the style and application of the medium, so there you have it. It is a start in getting back to portraiture. BTW, there is a dab of pastel in this, too.

The infranasal depression??? Jeez, you sound like an ENT psychologist. Or at least like a picky portraitist. But that's okay. Do what you gotta do to to take us down this exciting new road. I for one can't wait to see the people you run in to!

Thanks for looking here, Sam. I will get the kinks worked out - half of the battle is seeing them!
