9" x "12 | graphite on paper | 2013
Framed (dimensions are of artwork only)
Before I start going through my pre-trip drive trip, thought I'd leave you with (what I feel) the finished graphite portrait. Could have finished on day 2 but I took extra time going back smoothing out shades, darkening, erasing, and removing fingerprints.... need to find a way to stop this.
I also experimented a bit, and quickly found out that white charcoal or a white gel pen will not work on graphite. I need to look more into this when I return.
Will be back Thursday.
