I didn’t really want to measure anymore either, so I decided to finish my drawing off in pastel. I thought it would be fun to do it loose and scribbly, and tried hard not to blend. I generally spend quite a bit of time standing 6-8 feet away from my paintings to check the values against the reference photo, which helps me with accuracy. No measuring involved, just eyeballs. It may not be perfect, but it was fun. Maybe next time I’ll try to teach him that.
