.Portrait from Life. by gabbyd70 .Portrait from Life. by gabbyd70
Another portrait drawing from life. I really enjoy drawing these.

I used Strathmore 500 series charcoal paper and extra soft vine charcoal. Drawn on 18"x 24" & it took about 3hrs time.

I took a pic of this with my phone so the quality is not great :/ but thanks for taking a look!

I love your soft style.  As soon as I'm caught up on my homework, I want to take a leisurely (virtual) walk through your gallery.

When i think that in 3 hours i just sweat trying to do a not to weird sketch, i'm jealous you can make such a portrait from life !

This portrait is very sensitive, i really like it !

I like this, especially since you are expanding from your more stylized faces.  The expression in the mouth and eyes is especially good.  I like the soft quality.

(I just did a drawing-from-life session with a local artist here.  It's challenging, but hugely rewarding.)

The ones I've posted online so far are from art classes, so the teacher finds the model. But I have drawn friends before from life. Thanks! :)

You have such an awesome awareness of the subtleness of depth. That wasn't supposed to come out so pretentious, but what I mean is you are unreal
