Head Drawing Example 2


This drawing was approached in the same manner as the last post. I chose before I started to leave the background white. Because her hair is dark, the light background works well.

It's all about the value pattern and the 2 value statement. For those of you who aren't familiar with the above terms. If you squint at the drawing you will see a separation in the values that create 2 shapes. What is in light and what is in shadow. That is the 2 value statement. The stronger and the more simplified the shapes the easier it will be for a beginner to proceed.
