Wet Canvas Weekend Drawing Event SKETCH OF MAROUSCHA

 The weekend drawing event on Wet Canvas is a challenge in which you select a picture from those posted and then have a two hour time limit to complete your work.  For, me it is a great way to improve my speed and accuracy in drawing and painting. You can't overwork..there is no time.
This is Marouscha. This sketch took about 1 1/2 hours. In this I tried to not only capture her likeness but also to use economy of line.  Too many lines on a child's face will age the child and make her look old.  We have all seen portraits of children where this is the case.  Also, in drawing children proportion is very important as it is not the same as in an adult.
