Drawing the Mouth with Charcoal and Chalk
Drawing the mouth with charcoal and chalk.
When you start to observe the mouth that you are drawing, you gradually realize it is not the simple feature you imagine.

Each mouth is also unique and as such requires close observation to capture its individual characteristics. It is a key component in any portrait.
