Again getting practice in doing portraits I chose the lovely portrait of Mathila's friend. Done in my Canson A4 90grm sketch pad. Done with a 2B mechanical pencil. The tilt of the head was a bit off... but reasonable likeness.

Did three versions of Robin reference. All done in canson 90grm A4 sketch pad.
First I tried out my new sanguine charcoal pencil.... about 20 minutes...
Then I did a fast pencil sketch... about 15 minutes .... and then without the image on my monitor... blotched it with the color.... Lyra watercolor crayons fulfilling the challenge to use our own colors!
