Title: Day 2 of Lockdown is Almost Over
Medium: A4 Paper Pencil H
Today was the second day of the lockdown in South Africa and nobody is allowed to go out. Everyone sits at home and you are only allowed to go to the grocery store or the pharmacy or the doctor.
We don’t have an idea of how long it is going to continue. South Africa has an 21 days lockdown.
So the sketch, what do I think of it?
It took me around two hours to draw a pencil sketch. So it is time, and I get a lot of practice. I like the eyes it is working, the nose is good and the mouth. I just struggle with the grey hair, because this is an old man with a lot of hair and it is grey. Furthermore, I am happy it is my second sketch I did today, so it is good.
