Robyn's Gaze - original charcoal portrait drawing

I was fascinated by this young woman's way of  - not staring, exactly - but gazing intently.  I felt she was sort of looking through me, but actually, I think she was not even aware of this mannerism and was mentally far away.  Robyn is a wonderful model and I hope she'll pose again.  Good models are so tough to find!  This drawing was done with vine charcoal - mostly turned on its side and working very quickly - on 14 x 11" Strathmore drawing paper.  Thanks for stopping by!  PS.  see what I published on my oil pastel blogSold
