innocence: complete

Innocence | 9x12" | Graphite on paper

I'm a couple of hours shy of leaving on a work-related trip to Lake Conroe. No fun, no pleasure, strictly work.

Before I start going through my pre-trip drive trip, thought I'd leave you with (what I feel) the finished graphite portrait. Could have finished on day 2 but I took extra time going back smoothing out shades, darkening, erasing, and removing fingerprints.... need to find a way to stop this.

I also experimented a bit, and quickly found out that white charcoal or a white gel pen will not work on graphite. I need to look more into this when I return.
Will be back Thursday.
