I'm watching a class on Skillshare by Marco Mazzoni, a colored pencil artist. It's about creating chiaroscuro portraits, utilizing darkness and light.

Realistic portraiture is something that I don't have the greatest interest in, so I decided to use the techniques discussed in this class to explore my preferred style of drawing.

I enjoyed using colored pencil, since it's been many years since I abandoned them for india ink and crow quill! I was surprised how small my black pencil became while doing this drawing! It feels satisfying to burn through supplies.
