This time I try to look at a model without closing my eyes, open the mouth a little and focus on the outline, which also helps me capture the face more accurately.
2. From a photo that was taken by my sister, whom I had asked to take a portrait of me because I was too shy to pose for it, I was able to draw. I copied the black and white photograph, this time changing the background to a dark, greener one. To accomplish this I used the white of the paper as a reference, but I also used some more water, although I don't remember if I really splashed it. I used my pen to add shadows and light to the face and clothes and some detail to the background.
3. From a photo of a girl taken in the bus, I draw the face of a girl.
4. I decided to draw a portrait of a boy in black and white, in a very different style than that of the previous ones. I used dark pastel, gradually becoming more light. I used the pen to add more detail to the face.
I tried to reproduce a photo I had of a girl, this time using more water and tinting the paper a darker shade, darkening the eyes. I used my favorite medium, which was black pencil, darkening the hair and the eyebrows. I used my eraser to cover up any mistakes that I had made.

I drew with a smaller brush and was really careful with the details.
7. From a photo I had of a friend, I tried to reproduce a girl's face. I tried to express the details in an accurate manner, as I didn't want to draw a photo but rather draw something that I myself would like to have. I used an eraser to erase some mistakes I had made.

In a statement released Thursday, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Rep. Debbie Dingell, D-Mich., announced they would not support Conyers because he would not support their bid to oust him in November.
