"Linda" portrait from life at Goward House

You have heard me declare before that Goward House is my testing ground for art in all sorts of media from oils to pastels and beyond. Well today I spent an hour crafting this pen 'n ink portrait of sitter Linda.
I believe that working in one medium visits kindly upon the other media that I find myself embracing.
My portrait of Linda was done very lightly in pencil first, then I gradually applied cross-hatching in pen before flooding the larger planes in bold black. Voila. Hit the image to see a bigger view. Comments encouraged. Thanks, Ron.
