Almost Shirtless

Pencil drawing on A4 paper. They may seem obvious, but here are a few things learned during this drawing.

The type of paper has a huge influence on the amount of detail you can achieve. Had to tear this one out of the sketchpad - the surface underneath the drawing also dictates how much of the graphite "sticks" to the paper. As the drawing evolves, I often use fixative to stop it getting messy and this also affects any work over the bottom layers.

Love to hear from you - so send me your comments...
