Pencil Portrait Drawing

This is the sketch of my friend Christina that I did in January. This drawing was originally intended to be a portrait only, but I enjoyed the energia in the lines of the figure and clothing. I actually sat on the floor and looked up at the model to make this portrait in pencil. I wish that I had had more time to explore the textures of fabric, but then I might lose the loose quality that I enjoy so much here . . .
See what you think.

Despite the quality of the photograph, this is a pencil sketch done on a white Arches paper.
