Mixing it up

Phew!..I'm back...It's been a while since my last post...sorry about that...but here is a portrait I did a while ago using charcoal pencils as my base sketch and then overlaying with really wet watercolor washes. The charcoal bleeds and blends a bit and forced me to work a little faster.

Love the drama added by use of the charcoal, Annelein. As always, your work is just beautiful.
