9" x 12" pencil

I cannot begin to tell you how much I am enjoying doing these pencil portraits! This friend was over visiting my daughter, and she has such beautiful features that I asked her to sit for a few photos. She knew that I was going to do her portrait in pencil, but when I sent her pictures of it, I think she was surprised at how gorgeous she really does look! The light was falling on her face through a patio umbrella, which reduced glare and made everything soft and glowing. Her hair is just amazing - it bundles itself into little groups of curls which have every color from deep auburn to blonde streaks. Yup - a beautiful woman in pencil that was so much fun to do!
