Cathy in black and white

I finished a portrait of Cathy this weekend. I thought it was the perfect picture to try out the graphitint pencils. I'll have to experiment more with them, all I really used was the black and grey and a touch of pink. I finished it in one night up until 4 in the morning. Seems like that's when I can really get into artwork. There's no one up, no interruptions and it's peaceful. Not that I have a madhouse, but I do have time to myself then. Weekends are also the perfect time. It doesn't matter what time it is when I don't have to watch the clock.
My granddaughter took the reference photo and I've been wanting to do it for awhile. So now it's done. It's 14" X 17" on bristol vellum paper.
