Beautiful ~ I think you've really captured her sensitivity. The oranges look great too. Thanks for the inspiration. =]

Thank you!

I never thought graphite could be this expressive until now.

Fiona, thanks for the kind words. I would look forward to those pastel FOs.

You're very talented! Portraits are so hard because even when you get the realism down, the likeness and spirit of the subject can elude you. Kudos!

And I like your charcoals even better. The shapes and flow of the woman and the shadows are just gorgeous.

I'm so impressed by people with the ability to draw/paint. My long time partner has just begun painting again after 40 years and it's fascinating watching the process.

You are so fortunate to have this talent!
