    A Nose

    from my new portrait that I am working on following some advice from our dear mr D Akey I am trying out some new techniques with the nose so thought I would see what you think.

    A very nice study, tonally very well refined. Moreover it's quite hard to find a lonely nose to pose ...

    As an approach suggestion I tend to follow (whenever I'm not copying), the nose initial rough sketch may be two triangles, an upper and longer one above and a connected one pretty short below. There's also a common central axys revealing they're actually two prisms as a base, this for turning the nose geometry as You wish.
    You may then place the nostrils in the triangle below. The inner part of the two nostrils would then be joint by a curve inscribed into the lover triangle. In the upper triangle there should be a circle or square to indicate the pony and two curved relief (more or less pronounced) over the nostrils. The upper part of the above triangle should have also curves (more or less clearly visible, to join the eyebrows.
    Obviously the sketch as well as the real and final one would have different measures depending on the nose types, possible bumps and asymmetries etc. and should consider a generally different lighting of the different planes on the two sides.
    I hope the idea of the simple geometrical skectch hereabove may be of help.
