Bluegrass Lady


7"X5" Graphitint & Aquarelle on paper

I did say it was time I drew some people. I realize that the only other figure I have included here is the statue of St Anthony, not exactly life drawing. Well this isn't really life-drawing either, but a photo of Ella when she was home for Christmas, playing Ben's bass.
Graphitint is great for low-key winter scenes, but they don't produce a satisfactory yellow or anything even approaching a fleshtone, so I supplemented tonight. Mind you, the watercolour pencils aren't much better, still, this was an interesting exercise, I may do do more of these.
