Sketching in the Galleries: Portraiture

Tonight our assignment was portraiture. We went to the 19th Century European Portraits and picked one to work on. I chose a oil painting of Louis-Charles Balzac, 1811 by Anne-Louis Grolet (1767-1824). This week I returned to white paper and used a 2H pencil for my underdrawing and then switched to my favorite Staedtler 8B to bring out the contrast and depth.
