Exercise 64. Close-up Shot

The close-up shot brings the audience even closer to our subject’s face. Framing-wise, you now need to draw just his head and hat filling the frame, with very little of the landscape behind him being visible. The closeness of this shot will give the audience more information about our cowboy, such as the fact that a bead of sweat is clearly running down from his forehead to his cheek in the heat. (Take no more than 3 minutes to complete this drawing.)
