29 Faces in May; Face 16

In Face 16 I used a female image reference from an old Vogue magazine. I lightly sketched her in a #2hb pencil; then I shaded her face with a woodless graphite pencil 8b.  With a paper stump and eraser, I refined the shading details around her nose, eyes and edges of her face and hair. The graphite moves easily on the paper and much of it also go on my hands. (Warm laughter).
