Art Every Day Month, day 11

2PencilPortrait - 1

This was done with two pencils taped together, a black charcoal and a red conte, plus a bit of white pastel. The idea was to produce some unexpected lines and expressiveness. Not my favorite portrait drawing of the week, but it was an interesting exercise nonetheless.

  1. To be honest, this is one of my favorites so far. The eyes, the expression. He looks like he is seeing right through me. I love it for the drawing, not the technique.

  2. I actually love the addition of the red lines, they’re added so organically that it looks spectacular. Great portrait. Visiting from AEDM.

    I really like this, it’s such an intense expression on the face.

    I, too, love the touches of red, they heat it up somehow.
