Girl Head Study - Work In Progress



Update 2
 I can hardly believe how long it's been since I've posted an update. But, finally and thankfully after this long break, I am drawing again.
This portrait is by no means finished yet. I am still working on smoothing the face by adding layer upon layer of graphite. Next update should be forthcoming in a few days. Thanks for stopping and looking.

It's about time you got back here! I was getting ready to come drag you back, lol!

It's looking really good, Christine, & I'm so glad to see you posting again!

Ahhhh, thank God for friends who won't let me drag my feet for too long. ;-))

Thank you, Jan, for taking the time to comment! :-) This portrait has been very difficult for me up to this point. For one, I am working from a picture shot with frontal flash, which always is difficult to "read", then I am practicing a new drawing technique and paper combination which I have found difficult to master, so far.

I am glad to have finally gotten over my "artist block" and whatever else stopped me from drawing since November. It's good to have a pencil in hand again and working with new vigor.
