approx. 10×14″ – graphite on newsprint

Day 13 here, almost to the middle of the challenge and I am seeing things improving. I have come to realize that one of the great secrets to doing a drawing like this is keeping your eyes open. Paying attention to what you see in front of you is paramount to being able to get it down on paper. Measuring and comparing is the most essential tool in the drawing toolbox. I messed it up in yesterday’s drawing, though it may be hard to see. I didn’t make the same mistake today.
