Here is another pencil drawing I did last night.  This is for Day 11 of the 30-in-30 Challenge.

One of the things I’ve never been really good at when drawing faces is drawing hair.  So, I go and pick one of the hairiest guys I’ve seen in a long time and decide to draw his portrait.

I was watching a Youtube video last night while eating dinner and it was an interview with one of my favorite artists, Peter Fiore.  As I watched I got the urge to draw and the rest is history.

One of the most interesting things he talked about in the interview came near the end, when he was talking about just sitting and staring at your painting, in the studio, with your lights out, near the end of day.  He said to look as the light is fading and see if your painting provides its own glow, or does it need artificial light to bring it out.
