On My Easel Sketch of Gemma - original charcoal portrait sketch in progress

Here's a little 12 x 9" sketch of Gemma - not finished, but one that I'm enjoying working on.  It's on Strathmore toned paper, which is fun to draw on, especially when using a little white in addition to the charcoal.  As I progress, I'll use some white - just not there, yet.  Thanks for looking!

Looking good - charcoal on that range of tones is so effective. That distant look in the eyes is caught so well.

Look forward to seeing it finished.

Excellent sketch Connie. I hope to see this finished, although...it looks like it's almost there!!!

Hi Hilda - thanks so much - yes I guess it's about done - must stop my tendency to overwork!
