This is a portrait of my baby girl (age 8). My first and only daughter! Done on 11 X 14 Strathmore Bristol 100lb, with vellum finish sketch paper by Appalachian artist, Linda Hinchey of southwest Virginia. I used a mix of graphite pencil and charcoal.
“What I wanted most for my daughter was that she be able to soar confidently in her own sky, whatever that may be.”~ Helen Claes
This was done from a series of photos (not from a sitting).
