Here is an update on my drawing of Kate Zambrano, 9 x 12 graphite pencil on Bristol Smooth paper. Kate is one of the artists who inspires me. The emotion she creates in her work just touches my soul. Emotion is a main focus in my own work, both my own as well as my subject's. I hope to do Kate proud with this portrait. For pencils, I am using Pentel Graph Gear Mechanical pencils with 4H, 2H, H, HB, 2B, and 4B leads. I am creating her skin tone by making tiny tiny overlapping circular motions, my blog shows a small clip of my technique. I also vary my hand pressure, more pressure for darker tones and light pressure for lighter tone. More to come soon!
