Detail of Age

This is another drawing I did in my Art Class. We were looking at the characteristics of faces, and how they change at different ages. This particular drawing is of a toddler. I was focusing on the smooth skin, and how there aren't as much shadows than in an older face.
I don't usually draw with colour. I prefer sketching and shading with a Grey Lead, (usually HB or 2B,) and getting more depth in the picture, which I have learnt is something that isn't quite as easy to do with coloured pencils. This is what I have done here. I have done a lot of shading and line work, giving the picture a lot more depth. I also focused on the creases in the shirt and the shadows around them.

I would have to say that I am very proud of this drawing.

  1. Dear RebeccaP,
    I love your drawing. Its shows allot of expression. I am the type of person that loves to art and craft but I am not as good as you. At our school in grade 6 we do a clay tile and put it on our friendship wall that we have been working on lately.Maybe you might want to visit our blog here
