Something different – pencil portrait of my great-grandmother

This is a pencil portrait I did of my great-grandmother. The photo I worked from had her face in shadow, so I rendered it that same way. If I did it over, I might lighten the shading on her face as it may be a bit too heavy. I don’t often do portraits of people, but her kind eyes and well-lived wrinkles just made me want to give it try.
