FIRST, FIND YOUR PENCIL…….

Anne D'Alton's Artworks, illustrtation

As an Artist, who loves to draw, I cannot emphasize enough, the importance of making a good drawing when starting any artwork.

  A drawing  is as complex as painting.

To demonstrate what I mean, I have chosen the side profile portrait of an older man.    This is a relatively simple illustration but it shows, I believe, the essence of the person without losing this in myriad details of lines, dots or unnecessary shadows.  You will note that I have not gone into too much detail in this work as it is the eyes and mouth that play the most important features in the human face.

Profile of a man.
