When I arrived at my art group on Thursday I discovered that a model was sitting for us. This was rather a daunting prospect! I don't draw, have never drawn people - and certainly not portrait style...but hey it is good to taken out of your comfort zone...or so I keep telling myself!
Getting a basic outline
Shading to try and achieve some depth.
I am actually quite pleased with how this turned out - I have a long way to go, but for a first attempt at anything like this I think I can say I did okay.
I did take a photo of the model, although she tilted her head back from where it was just as I took the photo!
Apparently she is coming again next week, so I might try again from another perspective and maybe try painting her!
