I was most interested in her jacket not being centered. Crazy? Probably. Anyway, I didn't give it a ton of thought while drawing and I'm sure it could be improved with a lot of work, but it could also be killed, which is sort of a specialty of mine when I spend too much time on something. Anyway, I adored her silver locket. This drawing is on 12 x 9" Strathmore 403 paper, which has that barrier against the oil in oil pastels - or that's what I heard years ago - and while you might be able to see an outline of the drawing on the other side, it doesn't leak through. I really love that paper and it stands up to Sennelier, which is very gooey. I've spent the afternoon rummaging through all my drawing papers, looking for a dark paper that would be good for a portrait drawing. I could probably go 50 miles to the art store and buy some, but I just know that if I go to all that trouble and expense, the portrait will be a disaster! Guess I'll just work on my black Stonehenge. Thanks so much for stopping by!
