Charcoal pencils on card stock, done primarily as an exercise for drawing hair.

    Amazing detail work!

      Actually as irony would have it, the "less" detail on the face is what makes it feminine...the hair, on the other hand, was something I really wanted to get into and make as many tiny strands as possible to feather out the edges so it did not look like a black charcoal blob. Smile

      THANKS! With acrylic paints, I get a good effect with thick brush strokes but for realism and to approximate reality and be as close to the source material as possible, nothing beats sharpened charcoal pencils and a large enough work surface. (And of course with me, black and white is always good for realism. No color problems. Big Smile
