At the weekly drawing sessions I usually set up for three-quarter angles and sometimes profiles. Last Thursday was a rare opportunity for a straight-on portrait. This kind of portrait requires attention to how the face is balanced yet asymmetrical. The picture above was drawn with charcoal and "white charcoal" pencils on tan-colored sketchbook paper. For more about drawing sessions, go to "Labels" on the side bar and click on "sketching" or "drawing."
