though i do have a graphite piece in the works at the moment, i haven’t completed something in a while. looking back through some old stuff i came across this one. this is one i finished by poking away at it over the course of probably three years. it’s hard not to look at it and think about how grueling it sometimes seems to try and complete something. the hair in this one was quite the labour for me. of course, i’m happy with it i think. it’s a nice reminder for me to keep pushing through anything, let alone drawings or paintings. julia ormond on paper, 8×11″.
