A Sketch of meine Großmutter/Vanaema...my mother's mother, whom we called "Omi" (affectionate term for grandmother in German).
I tried lines/crosshatching and then blending with a soft synthetic brush (need to put up all my studio lights...they're still in boxes). Aux Quatre Crayons (Conté Sketching Pencils in four colors: sanguine, sepia, black charcoal and white). Plus a teeny tiny amount of Cretacolor Sanguine Powder.
I could have made some areas much deeper in color...and, I really have to learn not to smudge, and to check things like if pupils are symetrical, even. But not too bad. Now I should, like, actually follow some instructions in one of the books I have? Lol.
