Value Study. Super overdid it. Gave up eventually.

Color & Value Exercises - image 3 - student projectI was pleased to see the photo reference for the monochrome portrait is a photo I've drawn before (graphite value study) so I traced and printed my own sketch onto WC paper for this value study. Purple from HIMI Gouache Set on 140LB Canson XL WC Paper.

I've been working on portrait sketching lately so I did my own sketch for this one for practice. I'm not confident enough to just throw out the hand and make up what's behind it, so i got a little hand practice, too. I felt like I could fiddle with this more, but tried to just walk away.
