Pencil Portraits

Recently I have been concentrating on fairly large (600x840mm) pencil portrait drawings.

The discipline of being able to draw well is paramount I think to getting a good likeness in portraiture so every now and again I have a drawing spree.

It is good to be able to concentrate on just the drawing without the added complications of colour, tone and style involved in creating a painting in oil or acrylic and it allows you to focus on looking!
