My beautiful friend Anja-Amanda I used again as my model. I wanted to do one of these big flowy haired drawings and thought my friend fitted perfectly with her beautiful features and cute expression.
At the same time I was testing my latest drawing paper - Lana, for calligraphy. I think it was okay for charcoal though it's leaving tiny dark spots on the lightest parts. I have to use it again to see how it reacts, it might be suitable for pastels or colour pencils.
Made with soft charcoal.
