Marker Drawing of a Woman Wearing a Hat

This is a marker drawing of a woman wearing a hat. The portrait was drawn in 2002 with varying shades of grey and black markers. A thin black pen was used to sketch in eyes first, then other facial features and proportional marks for the hair and hat were drawn next. Light shades of gray marker were then layered in broad strokes. Drawing from light to dark, shapes and forms were built up to define the shadows and highlights of the woman’s portrait. Alternating values of dark and light areas, or chiaroscuro, help to create the illusion of surface structure in the drawing.
