Frizzy Hair

Graphite pencil and charcoal
Taking a break from pastels and going back to pencil for a while.This is also a revisited piece.Did it again, using different paper, different approach.Pencil work needs to be pretty realistic for it to be noticed...and it needs a LOT of patience to achieve that.I still lack that patience as it is in my nature to rush things ( ask my husband!) You would wonder why I draw,then? Well ,first, because I have to draw! Teaching myself to be patient would be another bonus.
Have a great weekend, you all!


  1. Your patience with pencils are amazing from what I see here, Arti!!! She is absolutely beautiful! It looks like a photograph and you should be SO proud of this piece!! I love it!!

  2. I see a lot of patience in most of your work. This is not an exception. Beautiful..

  3. She is adorable, Arti! You are a portrait master, no doubt in my mind.

  4. Dear Arti:) A masterjob. Love the highlights. You are doing just fine with your patience:) Hugs!

    1. Thank you so much, dear Renate.

  5. Arti, the light on her smooth cheeks is so beautiful. I've loved both of the portraits you made of this girl.
