about 5x7 #2 pencil on sketch pad. The face is based on a 17th century portrait. The tangled hair is all my own! These tangled pictures have been my latest way to pass the time with my sketchbook. I worked on it for about a week at odd moments. Sometimes I concentrated on getting the face right and sometimes I concentrated on adding to the hair. A fun way to hone skills and relax with patterns all in one picture!
