Here’s a little drawing for a very good friend whose dog passed a couple of weeks ago. I hope his smile brings one to her each time she sees this drawing.
I attempted a gridded drawing and looked carefully at shapes, lines, and tones as related to the grid I laid out. This was a challenge for me since I usually look at the subject as a whole and break it down into simple shapes and then move to more detail from there. I loved the way this turned and was very methodical and precise as I laid each mark.
Here are the drawing specs:
- 8×10 graphite on 140# arches cold press
- Pencils: tombow and staedtler (6h, h, b, 4b, 6b)
- Time: 5hrs
