A study from a photo I took from a public walking area near where I live, the weather being what it is at the moment, sketching outdoors would be impossible so I have to resort to working from photographs. I find the best way to work from photos is to not copy every meticulous detail as that would result in a very static work. Instead I try to focus on the general shape and value of the image, which is exactly what I would do if I were sketching outside anyway. The sketch was completed using 2H and 6B minen leads and a 9H derwent.
Thanks for looking :)
