It was a challenge for sure!B8725E0A-8A95-4423-9A2E-DAD5D0B643A8.jpegIt was taking so long to complete that I moved to my kitchen table so I could spend time with my family while I worked. 993B4250-680D-4A8A-9E97-934FFA07BE98.jpegShe’s done on 22x30 watercolor paper in graphite and some charcoal. Honestly, I don’t know what possessed me to try this, but I’m so glad I did!0C99EFE5-68F4-4712-93AC-AE5D7F22DABF.jpegI tried to make her look as photorealistic as possible, which proved to be a daunting task.F4FC99F1-8AE0-431F-B80D-019D07D5B62E.jpegI am really happy with the way she turned out so all the work was worth it!

Thank you very much!

Very nice, it’s hard to draw right up against the sides of the paper like that.

Thank you! I had almost 1/2 inch of it all around taped to foam board so that gave it some stability and made it much easier!

wow, this is just so beautiful <3
and the process as well, amazing work

Thank you so much for the kind words!

Congratulations @mistytippens! You have received a personal award!

The details are wonderful, and I had no idea you worked on such a large canvas. But really got me were the eyes, so arresting.

Thanks so much! I’m very pleased with the eyes-when you stand in front of this piece, the eyes seem to follow you.
