5.5″ x 3.5″ Colored Pencil and graphite in Moleskine
By Kirby

Switching over to colored pencil for a while on a Moleksine 3.5″ x 5.5″ sketchbook.

Figure studies like this, take me a while to do. The toughest thing is proportions. The face took me a long time to get right. Then I had some changes in proportion of the body as I went along. The under-drawing was done in 2B pencil with most of the erasing on the head, lol. The good thing about the Moleskine paper is it can take erasing. The background and some of the darker areas was in 2b graphite. The white line to her right is a thread from the Moleskine, lol.
