Painted yesterday using conté on toned paper, the paper showing through to produce the flesh tones. The paper was sand coloured ingres paper and was not so grey as the paper in the reproduction. I spent longer on this than I do on most of the sketches shown in this blog.
Last weekend was spent with my family and I drew two of my great nieces. Lily and Georgia. They are the grandchildren of my youngest sister and very beautiful little girls they are too. Both were drawn with blue chalk as they moved around and lived their lives..
