This is a portrait of my grandaughter Lindsey,its 14x17,done on 2-ply bristol board with graphite.

I was inspired by a photograph I took of Lindsey,it had a soft Victorian look to it and I couldn't wait to try drawing it.
I think getting hair to look like hair is the most challenging thing in a drawing such as this but I was pleased at how it turned out. I've never had any kind of art lessons etc.but I won first place with it at the county fair here.

Wow!
by: Jenn

I wonder how old she is...She has such a mature look on her face. Great job, and her hair looks just fine. I love how you got the little fuzzy baby hair by her ear, too. Well done.
