Algerian Girl by Alene Algerian Girl by Alene
A little portrait I completed recently, started as a live portraiture demonstration at an agricultural show. 

To see progress shots and the original photograph I used to draw from, head over to my blog: alene-art.blogspot.com.au/2016…

Media: Graphite on paper. There's a list of the materials I use for pencil portraiture in the 'Tutorials' folder of my gallery.
Time TakenAbout 12 hours

Enjoy! =D (Big Grin)
