Kind of Witchy - original oil pastel portrait sketch

I made this poor model look pretty ugly, but somehow, I got started and just couldn't stop.   If she sees this, I hope she can forgive me.  Models, though, are used to seeing things done to them that people who aren't professional models wouldn't appreciate.  I love models.  Without them, there wouldn't be very many figure drawings, portraits, etc., so I am one of their biggest fans!
This piece is about 9 x 7" on black Stonehenge - a wonderful surface.  It's seems smooth, but has enough tooth to grab the oil pastel.
