Hi, Happy Granny Celeste,
The drawing is nice! Interesting to see your own nature comes up in this work.
Cheers, Sadami

Wow! You really got it all here - that expression. I age people 10 - 20 years if I draw them.

Really like this, Celeste

You have such a wonderful hand with portraits...I wonder who this lady was? A teacher? A governess? A maid? A mistress? I think this piece has done its job and made me think!

Nice drawing. The masters offer a lot of info and she does have a Celeste touch.

I love the angle of the face and the loose hairstyle, makes her feel warm, as if I already know her :)

Beautiful drawing--hard to believe you got so much onto a 6x9 sheet.
