• Sketch of an Actress - original charcoal portrait of a woman

    One year ago - By Hackberry Street Studio

    This little drawing on Strathmore's toned paper is about 8 x 6" (actually on 12 x 9" paper, but I matted it smaller).
    The model is an actress and was in her stage makeup - complete with false lashes and eyeliner which gave her eyes a lot of impact - I loved it!

Thanks for looking!
