Well I made this between some commissioned work. : ) I drew this with mechanical pencils (3H and 4B lead) on vellum canson paper & I used a photo ref of a model named Emma Maclaren (Materials:…)

I really enjoy doing graphite/mech. pencil drawings. I just don’t do them very often as they are much more time consuming then pastel drawings...and they also start to hurt my neck after a while because of working on small details. :XD: I enjoyed drawing this though =]

Wow... so incredibly detailed :wow:! It looks amazing. How on earth did you capture those extremely fine light strands of hair over the rest of the hair?

Your technique is amazing! I love this drawing :)
your pencil work for the face neck and shoulders has realistically captured your model. The hair is I think beautifully rendered montage, clever and, without doubt is a well finished and polished example of true craftsmanship (does that word still work for a talented woman)?

This is silly to ask probably but what is the usual dimensions of your work? I am struggling between smaller canavases/paper or larger for the sake of laying down details or working with smaller for better proportion control. I love how you were able to put down good texture to convey hair : )

This was a 9 by 12 I do believe. :) I like to work lifesize or a little smaller when I draw portraits like this. I've never been one to paint really big.
