9" x 12" pencil portrait

I cannot tell you how much I am enjoying doing these pencil portraits! It is especially fun if I know the person, as I do this dear friend of mine, Alisa. This portrait is based on a photo I took while we were in a wonderful coffee shop called Coffee Traders in Cochrane, Alberta. Cochrane is a small town nestled in a valley of the Bow River, and is just minutes away from the Rocky Mountains. I love visiting this little town, and it is especially great when I get to have coffee and discussion with a friend. Alisa had agreed to having her photo taken so that I could do her portrait. I think she will be pleased with the results.
