Portrait in pencil


Well portrayed Gudrun, an elegant lady.

Fabulous face and drawing

Another great subject, expertly drawn.

You've captured the expression and the signs of ageing very well, Gudrun. Well done!

So beautiful Gudrun, not in a pretty way but a sincere and respectful way.

Hang on Studio Wall

Archival, pencil, on acid free 20x20cm paper. I felt compelled to do a drawing today and this particular image is an enduring one because we shall all age. I shall continue with my large oil tomorrow all being well.
