Self-Portrait Sketch

This is my first sketch of the morning, using an "F" graphite pencil.  Our YOP this month is a self-portrait so I'm practicing.  My apologies for the grainy photo, it was taken under low light and had to use Photoshop on it to lighten it and change the sepia tones created by the lamps.

You go Ann, this is you. WOW I'm impressed. Hope I can do as good.

Looks good Ann. I have to use auto fix on most pencil drawings. It whitens the background. The eyes are terrific and it's brave of you to do an open smile with teeth mouth. In pencil, that mouth isn't difficult,but in paint? That's another story.
