Pencils still making sense: step2 of new graphite drawing.


Here is the "state of affairs" before the beginning of the WE.
Pencils have been eagerly scribbling and co-operating. Some progress has been made to the hair, the head and the jacket.
Drawing hidden eyes and expression is a little tricky. Not quite there yet.
Will need a few more hours and once that is looking good I'll put a jacket on.

Will post a new update on Monday (or Tuesday).
Until then, wishing you all a "spiffingly" excellent week-end and a terrific Mother's Day.

Hi Sheona,
I found your blog through Laure's Painted Thoughts blog---so glad I did! I love your work---so inspiring!

I am excited to see that we are neighbors. I am an American living in Waterloo. We have been here for 9 yrs, but we are leaving in June to go back to Louisiana for 1 yr and then on to Paris.

I will be back to see your progress on this beautiful portrait---All the best to you~~Kathy
