I used a reference solely to get an idea of what I try to do. I draw a lot of lines to make it impressionistic. I like that style. I also enjoy working with the shadows. The sketch is a bit off-balance from the paper and is not a hundred percent in the middle. I used the Reilly method to do this sketch and that is mainly the reason why it is off-centered.
I worked about 4 to 5 hours on this sketch but I learned a lot.
