Portrait of Baby Mary Rose - 4 - Detail - Pencil Drawing

Worked some more on the initial tones on the rest of the face, arm and chest. Started drawing the hair and the other eye. Also began adding detail to the nose.

Apart from experimenting with the mostly-graphite-powder-skin-tones method, I am trying to lessen the darkness of the skin tones as well. I tend to go quite dark because I feel that I haven’t achieved the skin texture I am going for unless I’ve applied layers and layers of tone, which often leaves the portrait looking too dark. I wonder if anyone else is in the same situation…
