Pen sketch of a friend...

Pen Sketch of Lin
Pigma Micron 01 on Pocket Moleskine

This was sketched from a selfie a friend of mine posted as part of a photo challenge on WetCanvas.com. I liked all her images and had meant to do the castle or something... but when I got right down to choosing I loved the strong sun she stood in and the extravagant waves of her hair. So I actually kept it very simple and penciled first, getting the contour lines of her long face and very British features. 

She's a great artist herself, especially in oil pastels and colored pencils. I'm sure I might have done better in pastels but I'm still fighting the flu. So tonight it's just a quick sketch in a style I haven't done for years.
