Pencil Sketch

I had no actual reference as I sketched this. My intent was to just practice hatching lines  (evenly spaced strokes with the same pressure) to create a random shape of value. I started seeing some facial features so I brought some of that out with an eraser.  I did more of the hatching alternating with an eraser till I put in detail in the eyes and mouth.  It  is really just a doodle; kind of fun when they turn out to look like something!  I need to put the iPad down and do more sketching and get ready for getting outdoors.

  1. This sketch is great Carrie ... is it a self portrait ? (you didn't mention that) ... if so, you are fantastic at quickly creating a very recognizable portrait !


Thank you for your comments!
