with faces like this i learn so much about the power of line; about darkening parts of the outline of the face, eyes, etc, to pull the eye here or there. in this case i used an 8B pencil for that. i love these pencils - i now have three of them! one for every spot where i might sit down and draw...
everything that i used for rose's face... the oil pastel is a cream caran d'ache neopastel.
