A Beautiful Blonde

This drawing is of my beloved mother.  I had intended it to be an illustration type drawing, but I can't seem to get the hang of that.  I keep heading into realism...  Not that illustrations are not realistic, but I wanted to stylize it a little bit.  But, I love that picture and enjoyed drawing it.

It is graphite and white charcoal on very smooth mixed media board.  I did it quickly.  I didn't spend very much time on it at all, so I guess you could say it is a sketch.


Happy Independence Day!
