Lucille Ball

I continue my journey into sketching with this rendition of Lucille Ball taken from a profile photo of her early in her career.  The text on my gallery image, here, explains more about the closer than usual connection I have with Lucy and is a cleaned up version of the small image shown below.  But this post is about my sketching, not  Lucille Ball.  I may have reached the top of my meager game in terms of these profile and full face drawings – and what a learning curve it has been.  As noted before, it has really provided much instruction to my eye in terms of “shades of gray” which I intend to put to good us in my photography efforts.  I need to branch back to landscapes as there is a real challenge I have in that area concerning “suggesting” what should be seen rather than trying to depict each tiny detail.  Will keep everyone posted.
