---> STAGE 2: 1/3 Face Drawings <---

It has been a very long time since my last update on my "Beauty Series" and I am so excited to share with you what I have completed thus far. I completed Stage 2 on 12 out of the 36 pieces of my series. For Stage 2 I used a 2H pencil, an HB pencil, and a 3B pencil to draw on the faces. I chose pencil as my medium for this stage because it gives the faces a faded, almost ghostly look. This will help me portray that true female beauty is found in ones personality and character not external beauty. However, the portrait is still the focal point of each piece as the image was chosen by each individual woman as the photo THEY feel they look beautiful in.

This series has been very enjoyable so far and, after a little break, I hope to put many more much needed hours into them and provide you with a new update soon. I hope you enjoy them! Thanks again for your support!
