Portrait in pencil


Another good ink portrait Gudrun

Excellent Gudrun, instantly recognisable.

Thank you for your appreciation. I like to practice from black and white photographs of lesser known people. It was interesting using green and blue. Russell, I am pleased you recognised 'my hand' so to speak.

Superb Gudrun ....I love your mark making.

Fantastic sketch as always Gudrun
