Portrait Sketch

About every other month, I like to draw something as accurately as I possibly can without the use of tracing, grid or transfer. Just good old fashioned eye-balling. I have many good photographers in the family and this photo was taken by my son, Mike. I love the lighting on her sweet, pensive expression. I worked an hour here, an hour there...taking breaks from my assignments and commissions. I could refine it more but I think I'll leave it the way it is.
