Child Graphite Sketch

A quick graphite sketch of a little girl that was drawn from a photo of my niece when she was a child. I used Photoshop to increase the contrast because I sketched so lightly. I'm working on sketches of elements that will be placed in a painting. Using these sketches, I will cut out some of them to place on a larger piece of paper to arrange the composition. I haven't tried composing a painting this way but read about it and thought this would be a good time to experiment with it.

This second sketch of a little girl is the sister to the one in the first sketch. One is fair and one is dark.
