im looking to improve my drawing in pencil from life so ive started a self portrait. i went out and bought a cheap easel and a board. really finding the whole process of blocking out and measuring to try and achieve a likeness very interesting. i spent about three hours blocking this out to this stage. its really difficult but im learning a lot as i go. its about life size but progress will be slow as i can only work on it at the weekends as its dark by the time i get home from work. and im using a natural light from a window at home. feel as though it looks like a younger me, need to rectify that.
