Portrait drawing of Jan Van Hoef in shades of bister

My latest drawing, a portrait of my son Jan with beard. Made with chalk, pastel and gouache on Canson Studio lavis paper, 63 cm x 68 cm. I chose a very precise and time-consuming way of drawing here, made in several layers, almost like in the construction of a classical painting with an under drawing, a second stage and a final rendering stage to end with this result.

The original finished drawing with the correct colours in daylight

The same monochrome drawing in tints of bister in artificial light before signature
