Preliminary Sketching

By contrast to the other approach I take in preparing for a finish drawing I'll post this graphite sketch I'm using for another current work in progress. This bald eagle sketch is a very comprehensive graphite study (9"x3.25") that is the basis for a piece that is part of a continuing series of avian portraits I'm working on. Several years ago I established this narrow vertical format (24"x9") that I've held onto for this ongoing project. I'll post the work in progress in the near future.  You can see other portraits in this series on my website.
