First Stage of Pencil Portrait

This is a pencil portrait of Dr Kanodia which I’m currently working on. The portrait must be completed as soon as possible, so it will stay on the easel all next week. The reference photograph is quite blurry, but let’s see what I can do to create a nice portrait anyway. I will however prepare and tone all canvases for next oil portraits in line next week as well. The toned layer must dry before I create the initial sketches on.
