Photographic Drawing

Drawing with detail just requires taking a closer look. It helps to use a photograph for reference, and with enough practice you may be able to do it from memory. Using a gridded system keeps proportions precise, and allows the drawing to be bigger (or smaller) than the photo reference. Artist Chuck Close has been working from gridded photographs like this for decades. He builds his images by applying one brushstroke after another, paying close attention to every detail within the grid.
