    my portrait at 16 months

    this is from a photo of incredible poor quality.(November 1955)
    It's done in a rush in HB2 pencil on Strathmore drawing paper.

    Hey El' nice start to a sketchbook. Good to see you using the pencil, i thinks it gets overlooked by a lot of artists nowadays. Be mindful of your shading direction tho, try to draw your strokes in the direction of the form when shading and don't be afraid to push harder in some places... keep it up ;-)

    First attempt to draw it is a failure and the blending is awful, but I am ready to try it again tomorrow, maybe.
