Portrait of an Old Man - Charcoal Drawing Process
Hi all, today I'm sharing my drawing based on the work of the great artist of John Singer Sargent who was considered the "leading portrait painter of his generation". He has produced amazing painting but decided to focus on his charcoal portrait drawings for now. Below is my finished charcoal drawing based on one of his works with the process that went into creating it.
Completed on A5 paper with charcoal and 6B pencil.
I find his style to be very interesting. He has mastered drawing to the point that he makes it seem effortless in his work. With a few lines he is able to capture the expression of the sitter and leaves parts unfinished intentionally to focus on the important areas.
