I practice drawing at least two hours every single day. I especially love doing the face. This picture is of my wife, Norene.
I have studied the structure of the face extensively, so I try to portray cheekbones, the bones over the eyes, the chin, eyelids, and lips. You will notice this drawing is done with a ball-point pen. I portray the shadowy areas with crosshatch. The lighter the area is, the smaller amount of ink. I have used colored pencils to add life to the face. The shadow areas are in blue, and the lighter areas in yellows and oranges.
