Did this portrait sketch in graphite using H and 2B pencils, this morning. The size and placement of the iris has to be corrected as he is looking a bit cross-eyed. Also, it looks like more time was spent on the folds and wrinkles in his neck because of the shading. This sketch will be used as the basis to paint his portrait so it is important to get the features as correct as I can before transferring to watercolor paper.
Today we continue celebrating September birthdays (it's been an all week thing). The family is gathering again and we will have a huge lunch then visit for awhile. A great opportunity to take photos to practice drawing people.
