Portrait of Baby Mary Rose - 1 - Pencil Drawing

Portrait of Baby Mary Rose – Stage 1
Medium: Graphite Pencil
Paper: Canson Grain
Size: 36 × 43 cm (14″ × 17″)

Hi everyone,

I haven’t been able to post anything for a long while now. I spent a good part of that time working on portraits which I can’t post right now as I haven’t asked permission from the subjects yet.

Anyhow, here’s a portrait that I am currently working on. This is stage 1 — the outline stage. Some of the reasons why this portrait is especially interesting to do for me are:

  1. It is a baby’s portrait (they’re so adorable to look at ;) )
  2. This is the first time I will be doing a “serious” full-figure drawing
  3. There are new subjects and textures for me to draw like shoes and lettering on her clothes

I am currently about a third finished with this drawing, but since I managed to scan it in between drawing sessions, I will post these earlier stages first.

By the way, this and all future image close-ups will be a bit bigger than what we usually post them. I decided to increase the size because I very much enjoy viewing other artists’ works up close to see and examine all the details that they’ve put in. I guess it’s a good substitute if I can’t view their works in person ;) . Anyway, let me know if you would rather have the smaller close-ups and I’ll change them back to the original sizes.
