9 x 12 graphite pencil on Bristol Smooth paper. When an artist puts all of their emotion, heart, and soul into a piece, this is when the magic happens.

MY EYE IS DRAWEN TO THE COVER/ SHEET AROUND HER. LOOKS REAL, SOFT AND JUST POPS OUT. MARVELOUS STRUCTURE AND CURVES. DEPTH. WONDERFUL.

Artist Reply: Joanie, thank you. I spent a lot of time on the sheet wrapped around her, approximately 35 hours or so just on the sheet alone. I wanted to get the light and shadow just right. I used a live model for most of this, it is definitely a lesson in observation as I paid close attention to the light, shadow; and mid-tones to create a natural looking balance in the contrast.
