Drawing the Eyes with Charcoal and Chalk
Drawing the eyes with charcoal and chalk.
It is best to begin any portrait with the eyes as they are the focal point and most revealing feature of the face. They are the key to the success of the work. If you get them right at the start, it boosts your confidence for the rest of the portrait. If you get them wrong and have to start again, you have not wasted time drawing the rest of the face.
