Portrait of Grandfather: Finished – Pencil Drawing

Posted by Faith Te on November 7th, 2007

Portrait of Grandfather by Faith Te

Here is my latest finished drawing. I drew this as a present for Grandfather’s 90th birthday. I was going for a sketchy look and used linear pencil strokes instead of the usual light circular motions I use for tighter, more-detailed drawings. This took about half the time I usually spend on graphite pencil portraits using my usual method. I hope you like it and please feel free to comment.


Medium: Graphite Pencil and White Pastel

Paper: Canson Grain

Size: 28 x 36 cm (11″ x 14″)


From the Art Studio,
