Study of a Head in Sienna

This small, rapid study was done using simple means:  the head was drawn in Conte crayon and black ink, the paper was unevenly toned with Winsor and Newton burnt sienna gouache with a square brush, and finally the highlights were added in white gouache.  The idea was to see how quickly one could achieve a reasonable likeness.  Everything being done fast, the white of the rag paper shows through in many places, which adds a certain sparkle.
