With this portrait, JT's face is mostly in shadow with just the left (screen's right) side of his face is in the light. This is my interpretation of JT.
This is a work in progress. The size is 11 x 14 graphite on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper. For pencils I'm using Prismacolor Torquoise drawing pencils 7H, 4H, H, 2B, and 4B. I'm blending using bathroom tissue paper, a medium tortillion, and a cotton swab.
Update coming soon!
