A3 Pencil Portrait – Corne van Zyl and Silent Wings

71 hours to completion, this is an A3 pencil portrait of Corne van Zyl and her Saddlebred horse, Silent Wings, commissioned by friend Engela van Tonder as a house warming gift.

I made use of a lovely set of Derwent graphite drawing pencils on off white paper with nearly a cartridge paper smoothness. As with the previous drawing, I started experimenting with a white “graphite stick” (in truth I imagine its a hard chalk” just to pick up the final highlights on the drawing.
