Queen Elizabeth in Graphite

This is my final picture of Queen Elizabeth. This is in graphite and white charcoal on a 12×16 piece of grey pastel paper. It makes a big difference how big a picture it is. Also, how long it takes. When I work large and take my sweet old time, it comes out much better. Many people think that artists can just whip out art in no time, but most of us need a lot of time. Even this could have been much better with some more time.

Anyway, this is in memory of a lovely lady. Now, on to my other projects…


The Queen is the only person who can put on a tiara with one hand, while walking down stairs. — Princess Margaret
