Sunday sketch

reading shirley's post at paper and threads, i remembered i did this figure exercise - completing the other side of a face - back in the summer. it's a great way to learn the placings/proportions of a face's features. it's drawn with ordinary coloured pencils - i'd thought they were watercolour pencils, and tried to blend them over the cheek - oops!
the image is from an old toast catalogue. i adore their clothes (and housewares) and keep all their catalogues - beautiful images, wonderfully produced - and the models are beautiful!
