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!
