Practicing Facial Features

For weeks I went not doing much with my journals........mainly due to packing and getting ready to move.  Plus I was just lacking motivation.

A very dear friend of mine helped with the motivation I needed by sharing a portrait tutorial sharing stages from initial line sketch to complete portrait (thank you, Clare).  Although I wasn't quite up for trying a complete portrait, I decided to take what I was learning and apply to individual features.

These graphite sketches are working both by observation and also trying the gridding method.

All worked in the sketchbook with cartridge paper (except the last one as noted on the page) I picked up in the UK a few years ago.
