Eye-lines

Mid-winter tired eyes sketched on four consecutive evenings before going to bed. I think they improved, with the last one being the best? I definitely became more familiar with the key shapes and lines, ‘zooming in’ on the subject, making accuracy and details easier. The brush-pen loaded with Noodlers Brown 41 worked well, broad strokes at first for eyebrows, pupils etc, then very fine lines for eyelashes, veins, wrinkles, eye-bags… Time for an early night!

    I like this and feel inspired (where is my brush with ink?). Doing self-portraits is a respectable alternative to standing in the snow blizzard outside right now. Better than sketching from photos, anyway. However, with the holidays fast approaching, many sketching subject, aka relatives, are flying in… Merry Christmas, Ed! 🙂
