Normally, 'heads' are not supposed to be posted here..

...since the 'censors' allow me to post them elsewhere, but I thought... why not here too! So here are four head studies I did yesterday, on 11" x 10" white cartridge. Ref images were provided by Luicre (who has kindly commented on this blog) in a weekly drawing event at WC.

  Sanguine Conte. Derwent drawing pencil for background 
  8B graphite (washable). Staedtler watercolor pencil for BG.
  Black Conte. Shifted her gaze a bit 
  8B graphite and Derwent sanguine stump (also in the BG) 


  1. As I have said at the wdt, great work, Prosenjit!


  2. Love this portraits, Prosenjit, all of them. You have such a skill with the contes !Luicre

  3. Thanks Luicre! :)

    I don't know about skill, but the more I use conte, the more I realize that if one's ability to use it at whisper-soft touch can be improved upon, it really broadens his tonal ranges and line control.

    Hope you're enjoying the holiday season :)


Thank you for your thoughtful opinion :)
