Completed in charcoal on Canson Mi Teintes paper. I am pretty excited about this drawing. I have entered it into the SGFA Draw 16 competition. Its the first competition I have ever entered. I'm not expecting anything but it would brilliant to get selected for the exhibition. This is Faith, the daughter of a friend.

The main thing was to capture the expression on Faith's face, she is obviously frightened but I still needed to ensure that the picture raised a smile.

I would really love to know what you think of it.
