I started this challenge out doing blind contour drawings, and every day I've gotten less and less blind and more exacting trying to get the features correct.
This drawing I really tried to get it right. I think this guy has a very interesting face with distinct planes, lines and angles. I started with a pencil and worked at getting the planes and shapes correct. Then I went over them with the ink pen. Instead of the watercolor pencils I got out my regular watercolors and used them. I can always use practice with watercolors. They don't come easily to me.
