Sharpening the pencil

Here are some shots of a pencil drawing I did long ago as a practice piece for a class taught by Barbara Rabig. It is as good a freehand copy as I could render of a photograph taken by Jill Uris and published in a book by she and husband Leon entitled “Ireland:  A Terrible Beauty”. Inside the mat is about 10″x 17″, the figure about 4″ tall. Click images for a closer look.
