Woman in the Crowd – Sketch

Woman in a Crowd – Sketch final

Woman in a Crowd – Stage 1

Portrait #30 for my 30×30 Portrait Challenge. Yay! I made it to 30 portraits on the 30th day of the month. Whew! Okay, so the last two are just sketches so far, but the challenge didn’t say anything about having to be just paintings, right? I will likely need the 31st day of January to finish the paintings.

Woman in a Crowd – Stage 2

This is a graphite sketch on 90 lb watercolor paper. I started with an outline drawing of the major shadow and light shapes (Stage 1). In stage 2, I shaded lightly to separate the light from shadow.

By stage 3, I realized I had some proportions off. I fixed the “big head” issue, but I still need to adjust for the “Monster shoulders” issues. Stay tuned.

Once the final corrections are made, I will trace up an outline drawing to my watercolor paper today. Stay tuned!
