Peruvian Spoon Seller

This is a colored pencil drawing that I still haven't finished, but I loved working on the face. This woman sold wooden spoons on the street. When I asked to photograph her so I could draw her, she was so funny, she kept saying how she felt like a movie star :)

Those eyes have so much wisdom and life experience behind them, I wish I could have talked to her more. She was very sweet and had the most endearing laugh.

Hopefully one day I'll finish the background. This has been one of my very favorite portraits that I have done. I wish I had more control with a paintbrush so I could do more stuff like this. Until then, back to the grindstone.
