Girl next door drawing by Mike Theuer

Currently unavailable for purchase

This 9×12 pencil portrait of a girlfriend was commissioned by the boyfriend. I drew it with a ‘blackwing’ pencil which is 4B grade on Canson pure-white paper.

I try to make a striking resemblance in my portraits. But I try not to make them look smooth and blended like a photo. I feel if I wanted a photo, then I should use a camera!
