Ethiopian Child Sketch

I have a few photos of Ethiopian children living in an orphanage in Ethiopia.  The photos were taken by my niece when they were allowd to bring their adopted daughter home.  This child has the most sad, pensive look and I want to draw her again until I can express her expressive look on paper, whether in pencil or paint.  Next time I hope to get the skin tones a bit darker although she was quite light toned.
