Just superb Christine, really really stunning. Like the new blog look as well, I like them in black, much more eyecatching I think

Christine said...

Thank you Teresa! The fabric was the most fun to draw of the whole piece, and I like the way it turned out.

Thank you Melody for your comment!

I appreciate your comment Karie-Ann! It was your blog which inspired me to do something similar. ;o )

Christine, this portrait is absolutely amazing! The texture of her clothes, her hair, her facial expression... Really impressive work! Hugs.

This portrait is so beautiful. The detail is amazing especially on the dress.
You can work those graphite pencils like magic.

Wonderful job.

This portrait is truly beautiful. At first glance, I thought it was a black-and-white photograph. I had to look closely to make sure it *was* a pencil drawing.
You. Are. Amazing.
lol :D
