Charcoal sketch Live Model

Grace is 11 years old and we had her take 15min poses with breaks.  I tried to break some old habits and resisted going for detail until the very last.  My wife thought the nose was understated, however, at the studio I darkened the nose and the model's right eye but it seemed too distracting so I erased and smudged them somewhat.  About 2.5hrs… Med charcoal stick followed by med charcoal pencil for detail.
