Here are a few more head studies, and quick gestures...

Head Study #8, 18"x12", pastel pencil on toned paper, available
Natanya I, 18"x11.5", pastel pencil on toned paper, available

I made this head study drawing of Natanya during a Saturday quick drawing session at the Palette and Chisel. Given only 20 minutes to complete the drawing, I focused on the main essence of her and left the rest to a mere suggestion. I like the way this drawing turned out to suggest a sense of time lapse — as if she is slowly emerging from a fog or a wall.
