The reluctant sitter

Graphite 11 x 14

I did a sketch of my mother today. Its very difficult to do drawings of her as she is rarely content with the final outcome, denying her age. Photographing her is even more difficult as she doesn't want her photo taken either. So working with several reference images,none of which were good, and life, I came up with this after about an hour's work.

And no, I didn't get to my large size today. Life got in the way.

I sympathise with people who are in denial about getting older! This is a lovely drawing, though. I like the use of hatching, which is very effective.
