Foto in Rou

It seems that when you have nothing to do, others think of things for you to do. Case in point my mom – not that I mind so much.  As I have had a lot of time on my hands lately she decided that I should do some sketches for her – inspired by the set poems for Afrikaans first language, gr.12.  The fist one I did was of the photo on which Joan Hambidge’s poem Monroe: foto in rou is based.  As there was a lot of shading needed for the sketch, I decided to save my poor old 6B and kind of bring words from the poem into the drawing.

She also gave me some other random photos to sketch but I kind of messed up the proportions in some of them.
