Charcoal And Graphite Portrait Exercises

Practicing freehand accuracy when drawing portraits. I find flawless features hard to capture because there aren't that many markers when drawing them without the aid of rulers or proportional dividers. I selected a photo of Ingrid Bergman and Grace Kelly to see if I can successfully capture their likeness.

Q&A with Johanne Climaco

Catherine V. Holmes asked:
I would love to add this beautiful illustration to my upcoming book. Would you mind signing a release so I may include your art? If you care to write a little blurb about what you liked/disliked/learned from this lesson, I can include that as well. Please contact me at cvholmes@hotmail.com
Johanne Climaco answered:
Hi Catherine - Thank you for considering my work. I saw your message just now because it is a long holiday in the Philippines. I'll be emailing you within the day. Just FYI - our time zones will roughly be 9-12 hours apart depending if you're under EST or PST. So my email may come at an unusual hour.
