|This is one of the interesting people I photographed during the Ecuador|
trip. He was at the market in Otovalo, playing the pan flute and
strumming his guitar. His dreadlocks were very interesting, and I liked
the shadows on his white shirt, etc. I also like the composition.
But I knew it would be a little bit challenging to draw.
|I started on it. This is Mi-Tientes drawing paper. It comes in a variety|
of colors. This is a sandstone color. When using colored paper,
you have to put down a whole lot of white pencil first. Otherwise, the colors
will not be bright enough. So, this is the first step; I am layering some white
colored pencil on the paper, paying attention to the highlights. I printed
the photo in b & w also, to help define those values. It should be fun!
