Drawing #11 - something different - a still life of coffee and biscotti as requested by a friend!
And #12 - talented and gorgeous actor Amanda Seyfried from the TV series Big Love, Mamma Mia the movie and lots more since.
Another lady with amazing eyes!
I've decided I really love to draw eyes - must be why I'm so keen on portrait drawing!
Tried out these on both drawings.....
.......(a Xmas pressie from Mum - thanks Mummy!)
I tend to use my finger for blending but I've found out that's a big no-no. Can leave grease on your page that the pencil then "grabs" to (yuk) and also leaves your fingers black! Messy!
These blenders are made from paper compressed into a stick.
You just rub where you want to blend your pencil lines.
I LOVE the result!
So subtle and perfect for skin.
Also worked well on the white coffee cup.
