Strathmore Drawing Paper Pad in portrait position as opposed to landscape because I wanted to draw the head and hands bigger.
I used Ebony graphite pencils. The model sits for 20-minute sessions before breaks.
- In 1st 20-minutes, I began with quick gesture drawing of head and hands to make sure both elements were going to fit. Then I sketched in head.
- In 2nd 20-minutes, I started sketching the hands.
- In 3rd and 4th 20-minutes, I worked on detailing both head and hands and building the contrast.
