Contemplation, A Drawing

I finished this drawing. I started it with graphite and white charcoal. I got to a point where I thought I needed a little boost, so I thought I would spray it with fixative and finish the drawing on top of that. I took it out to the garage, opened the door, and put the drawing on the usual spot for spraying. I got distracted while spraying and made a mess of it. LOL! I can be so stupid, sometimes! In a panic, I tried to fix it by rubbing and scraping. No good. So, I tried putting more graphite on top. Didn’t work. I tried using pastels. Nope. I tried starting over on another sheet of paper. Not the same. So, I gave it one last try with black charcoal. Jackpot! I worked and blended and worked some more and I think I have a nice little drawing. It is not what I was hoping for, but I like it. I just fell in love with the photo of the little girl looking out the window and I knew I had to have a drawing of her. I hope you like it.
