Graphite Portrait Commission - Sketch 1

Rough Sketch
This is the first update of a commission that I am working on.  It is of a young couple and the girl's grandmother.  I have decided to crop the subjects in slightly more than in my original lockup to allow the faces to fill the matted area nicely.  The completed portrait will be 18x24".

So at this stage I have transferred the sketch to the paper and just refined her features slightly.  Now I will build up the values slowly refining her features as I go.  This commission will appear to progress quickly as I have a tighter deadline than usual so I will just be putting in longer sessions than usual, which I quite prefer but usually do not have the luxury of  "getting" the time :)
