Yet another craft - drawing!

Yep, portrait drawing, that I mostly do while the kids are doing their work. They are independant learners which leaves me free to do my own thing and drawing keeps me closeby for questions!

I have been studying portrait drawing from dvds, you tube, and books. I am still very much in the beginning stage.This is supposed to be my niece but no, it doesn't look anything like her lol.
Lucas reckons it is too good not to finish so he suggested calling her Elizabeth. (not my neices name lol).

I will finish Elizabeth, hair to go..scary!
