The finished drawing .. added pastel to finish off. 25 x 30cm.
Excuse the old black gloves :) it's cold here today! Once I start I always hold the chosen pencils in my left hand until the end of the drawing - probably picked up a few more after taking this pic. The face on this one is all done with pastel pencil.
This is the initial sketch .. black pastel pencil on Fabriano pastel paper. Reference on computer screen. I may make alterations to the initial sketch as I work over the top of it.
