Maureen pencil on handmade paper [Not For Sale]
Spent a month on this 18x24" portrait of an ex-gf and fellow artist. Friends would come by daily to check on the progress. I used handmade French paper ($5 a sheet in 1970 and more durable like cloth) so I could I erase and redraw as often as needed. I did one eye six times and the mouth four times before getting it all right. Since it's my best portrait (of over 500 I've done), I've never been able to part with it.
