This time a less structured approach to the portrait drawing. I wanted to get a general impression first and work on the details later. This didn’t work out like that, but I got closer to a loose approach than the 11 times before.
The finished portrait sketch. The instructor suggested to add something in the background to have a more complete picture (a composition). I decided to add the cast shadow on the screen behind the model, and use it to accentuate the backlighting of the hair. I also strenghtened the vest and the colar bones, plus balanced the hair contrast and structure.
