Since the beginning of the portrait course (well, actually earlier) I had trouble seeing at a distance and close by. I needed glasses to correct this, but never had the money saved up, until I had a lucky break recently. This was the first time I used my next spectacles for drawing class.
So how did it go? Well, it was somewhat easier to see everything, but my field of view has become very much narrower, which isn’t always helpful with a big sheet of paper to draw on (I needed to take some steps back a lot of times to get an overview). And of course, the subtleties of portrait drawing are very much the same as before. You really need to concentrate to get it right.
