"Pout" Sketch

A quick charcoal sketch of two dolls that look like they are pouting. The purpose of this sketch was to get a feel for the line and shapes of the dolls and the background quilt. To see how the folds of the quilt direct the eye to the dolls and how the light plays across the faces and the areas of the quilt.

The line sketch is just to practice quick lines eventually getting better at quickly sketching the essence of a subject. The area below the lips is actually part of a bow tied from the strings of her bonnet.
