Even though the food and presents are always good, it is the time spent with family and friends that I look forward to every Christmas. I love watching the emerging personalities of my nieces’ children. Each personality is very unique and strong, it makes for an entertaining evening. This sketch of Little B is from a photo my husband took on Christmas Eve. I am not sure what she was doing or thinking, but boy is she cute.
For this sketch I experiment with different methods of applying and blending charcoal – a definite learning experience. I found the hair more difficult with this type of paper. Once the charcoal is worked deep into the tooth it is not easily removed to create highlights. Mental note made for next time :).
