Janie - original charcoal portrait drawing of a young woman
This little portrait - on 12 x 9" Canson illustration paper - is one of my all time favorites, because I feel I captured the slight smile (which at times verged on a bit of a smirk) and her reserve. And also because it's not what one would call finished. Works for me. The paper is 150 pound - nice and hefty and great for the side of a little piece of vine charcoal, which is what I used, except for a few lines here and there. Thanks for visiting my blog!
