Step 11, Elderly Female Portrait
Step by Step
Back from a short break with my wife and kids and straight back into this drawing. Today I have started to lay down the first layers of the other half of the background and started to blend it all together. On this side I have used the #Prisma #colour "warm grey set". These also come in 90, 70, 50, 30, 20 and 10 percent pencils. I wanted to use the warm grey set on this side to help with the way the lighting is hitting her face. On the more shadowed side I used the cool grey set to help with the shadows. Although this photo does not really show much of a difference in the colours, I can promise you there is a real difference in the drawing in front of me. Using cool and warm sets of colours in my opinion, really can make your drawing just that little bit more special.
