The Art Student - original charcoal portrait sketch

Today I attended a lecture where I was able to sketch this young art student as she listened intently to the speaker.  Her concentration was amazing.  She wasn't aware I was sketching her, but when I showed it to her, she absolutely loved it.  I'm always pleased - no, actually, thrilled - when the subject thinks it looks like them!  This drawing was done on 6 x 6" Strathmore smooth Bristol board paper with General's Primo charcoal pencils.  Thanks so much for stopping by Hackberry Street Studio!
