Sketch of my arist friend "Yinka"
I made friends with an artist yesterday. We made contacts over the internet and she came to visit my studio. Before she left, she requested I do a quick sketch of her. This sketch about 15-20mins, she was quite pleased with the result.
I have used a lyra brown skin tone chunky coloured pencil here on an 11" x 14" paper from a daler rowney sketchbook of 110 sheets.
My main focus in this sketch was not actually to get a striking resemblance but a quick balance of tonal values and gesture.
