Pencil Rendering For American Legion Drawing #308Z

  • Clinker Stylus Sketch

The pencil drawing of my fellow Legionnaires was done at our regular Wednesday morning coffee. Because I was tired this morning as I only had 6 hours of sleep, but I was determined to do at least one drawing! Most importantly, I wanted to capture this moment in time.

My focus is on the legionnaire in the center of the drawing. He is talking with a friend across the table and out of view in the picture plane. As you can see his mouth is open for the dialogue of the conversation. Because these drawing are studies I am short and to the point. I do not like to take more than 10 minutes per drawing.

The image of the figure in the background and in his face has been ceased at the edge of the main figure, for I did not want to compromise the integrity of his profile. Because I made use of a 6B lead pencil, and I keep a small cluster of them at hand so that I can rotate the pencils as the point dims. Most importantly, the use of hatching and crosshatching increases the quality of the drawing by bringing out the shades and shadows of the images in the room.
