Realistic Graphite Portrait

by Wendi OBrien

Supplies and Live Stream Info

This Realistic Graphite Portrait is my second piece of my homeless series.

I started this piece using graphite on a 24 hour New Year Stream I did with Chrissy from Xrissart. Check out the livestream video below if you would like to see most of this real time.

This was the second piece that I did on the stream. I worked about 12 hours on stream on this piece, which got majority of if completed.

I worked another 5 1/2 hours off stream a few days later to complete it. All in all it took about 17 1/2 hours to complete this piece from start to finish.

Supplies used:

Paper: Fabriano Artistico Hot Pressed 140 lb extra white watercolor paper (back side)

Pencils: Derwent Graphite Graphite Pencils 4H, 2H, 2B, 4B, 8B, Koh-I-Nor Toison Dior 8B

Kneaded Eraser

Tombow Mono Eraser
