This is the second portrait I've done of June, my sister. Unfortunately we lost her to cancer a few years ago. This is a birthday present for Mum.
It's done on Saunders Waterford 300gsm Hot Press paper, size 11 x 15 inches. 5h,2h,hb,2b mechanical and clutch pencils and 6b wood cased pencil.
I must have had a bad batch of paper as I had to restart this three times!!! I'm still not too pleased with how it turned out, so I've decided to try some different papers until I find one I really like.
