Kim Kardashian as she appeared in Paper magazine.
Approximately 5 1/2 hours of work.
35x50cm. Graphite and charcoal on 216gsm Premier watercolour paper.
To blend I used blending stumps and cotton balls. To stop the work from smudging I used Nuart fixative.
Some areas i would like to have improved on are the eyes – I realise that they should be more ‘squinty’ as her mouth is open. I also would have experimented with layering the graphite and charcoal between layers of fixative to try and achieve darker hair.
