mechanical pencil in Moleskine sketchbook

Portraits as such aren't something I normally do - but last night TV was boring, what's new? and so I decided to work from an old photo of my daughter when she was younger.

She has beautiful hair and the pensive pose in this photo was just typical of her. Oh the tears and tantrums when that hair had to be brushed though :(

beautiful mane of hair, reminds me of portrait sketches that Mervyn Peake did of his wife and of his sons when they were little.
