Mystery sitter

I must I've really got into the rolf harris star portrait is totally fascinating watching different artists tackling the same subject applying very difference techniques and approaches... Give a self taught old bloke a bit more confidence... and a little less inhibition to share my muddled techniques... and how i might approach sketch someone new

I generally start with some quick pencil work,... maybe a preliminary layout sketch... then something with soft pencil wher i rub in the graphic to define the shade and form... i often do a few of these

Then I might get out the watercolours and try building up the same form and shade using washes

special thanks to my anonimous sitter
