4th Breadth

7 x 9

This is my 4th Breadth.  I used pencil for this piece.  This is a picture I took of my friend Grace.  You can view her blog here:  I used an old vintage hat to give her a 1930’s look.  I drew her hair with different shades of pencil to give depth and value to her hair. After drawing her face and hair, I used a kneaded eraser to create the netting of the hat.  After erasing the netting, I darkened the diamond shapes to make them more visible on her face.  The highlights in her hair point towards her face which is the focal point of this piece.  The shadows of her face also gives her form. I really loved drawing this piece of art.  The white diamonds were interesting to draw and I’m happy with the outcome of this piece.
