|Free hand draw-in of Ruby for palette selection.|
|Likeness was not the goal of this exercise, putting together a palette was.|
|Mr. Henry Kissinger or Mr. Spencer Tracy? One sketch leads to another.|
NOTE: Mechanical leads of the same softness as a Berol/General pencil leave a lighter mark no matter how hard you press. Berol leads give a darker dark, but also leave a grainy effect--suitable for older skin. It could be the nature of the leads--or the texture of the Strathmore Drawing paper? Just something I noticed over the last weeks. I liked the effect for Mr. Kissinger. I didn't for the younger people I've sketched.
