Drawing is feeling. Color is an act of reason. (Pierre Bonnard)

I've been doing some graphite and some charcoal drawing. I love doing faces. Especially children and well seasoned faces. I have tried my hand at several methods I found on the internet and in books and am enjoying it a lot. I just finished this drawing of my great-niece , Lucy.I took the reference from the family Christmas card of all three girls. I toned the whole background with graphite then drew her face and picked out highlights with an eraser.This is the first time I have tried this method an kinda like the way it turned out.
