Five Years Old 13" x 13" Mixed Media In Progress



I wanted to draw a quick charcoal portrait to exhibit with the reference photo in the hope of generating portrait commissions. Good idea....yes? No... not so quick and it's getting messier as time goes on. How do people make nice CLEAN drawings? It is mixed media because I have used charcoal, pastel, conte and carbon!
You may remember I painted this last year, see here, and I have to say that I prefer her in colour, so I might do that again, instead.
Sorry about the photo, don't know why it is 'stripey'.

I love this charcoal etc version of her Sharon. Yes, the colour one is great as well, but this has its own charm.
