Quarantine Portrait Series: Self Portrait – Squinty Eyes; Lower Lip

I had a sharper pencil than yesterday.  It really makes a difference. Issues to overcome in the next sketch: 1) shadowing in low contrast areas – the left side of the face was uniformly darker and less detailed  in the reference photo; 2) subtle shading differences of large areas – difficult to achieve; 3) rendering of the nose – requires subtle shading as well, within very short distances.
