Fill Inthe Background And Middle Values

Fill in the background with Black to form the edges of the face, eliminating the outlines. Create the skin tone with a light layer of Peach. Vary the tone depending on the strength or weakness of the light source reflection, and deepen the shadows with Dark Brown. The reflection is strong under and alongside the nose, so use fewer layers of color there. Add a bit of Pink where the light directly hits the lip.

Use your imagination to create viewfinders in any size and shape. The smaller the opening, the more you will be able to divide your photo into unrecognizable shapes, thus making it easier to draw.

Enlarge a smaller project. For instance, the face in this exercise could be blown up and drawn on a much larger scale. It would make an awesome drawing for the wall.
