Charcoal and pencil on smooth Bristol paper
Portrait of my 16 year old niece Diya. Bristol is a bit too smooth for charcoal and tough to keep your darks.

Graphite pencil on paper
14" x 12"
Just completed this drawing which took me about 32 hours in all.This is a picture of a laborer from India, my friend and a talented photographer  Vikram Raghuvanshi very kindly allowed me to use this as reference.
I liked the way his face shows the hardships of his humble life.
