This week I got introduced to the masterful books of Andrew Loomis. One in particular caught my attention: Drawing The Head And Hands. New York: Viking Press
He focuses on facial structures and within the first few pages you are shown all the possibilities/ variations of portraits.
The Loomis Method has got me intrigued and I am looking forward to studying his techniques.
Here is my interpretation of the front cover drawn in charcoal and chalk on toned paper.
