New finished drawing called Keeping Secrets. A very detailed pencil portrait drawing of a woman. She has her finger on her lips and has a secret.

Keeping secrets
Lots of dark and black in this, I went through so much pencil lead doing it.
I used a photo reference from SaligiaStock on deviantart – http://saligiastock.deviantart.com/
I liked the contrast between the light and dark and thought it would make an interesting drawing.
Size is A4 (210mm x 297mm) 220gsm smooth cartridge paper, HB and 2B 5mm mechanical pencil, 

various grades of pencil ranging from 4h to 5B, tissues, cotton buds, blending stumps and erasers.
