Graphite and Charcoal Figure Portrait - Update #2
The paper is a creamy off white and with graphite the transitions always appear much rougher in photos and darker than in the original piece.
I have added most of the highlights and will do a bit more blending of the darks tomorrow. I may also darken the bottom area of her clothing to add more contrast with the top but will decide in the morning. I am quite happy with the way this is turning out though as she has a really nice peaceful feeling about her which I am after.
