Experimenting with Neocolor I and II crayons to do some wax-resist. For the most part the white is wax and the black is water-soluble but I also reversed them to add highlights and texture.

From a still from a movie.
Portrait of a young model.
Another pencil sketch.
A sketch from a painting.
Quick sketches from a brilliant photo.
Once again, this was not the sketch I started out to do. I was going to make a light sketch in graphite pencil and go over it with a watercolor pencil but… I shouldn’t have started with a 4B pencil to make some light marks. The pencil sketch started to take on a life of it’s own so I just went with it.
There’s definitely more character in the photo than I caught here. This face is definitely worth a few more sketches. But not tonight.
Putting this one out there for posterity.
Watercolor pencil–brown for a change.
As with many of the sketches I’ve done, the subject here deserves to be revisited. There’s so much character I missed.
