Violet Lafaye - Graphite on Charcoal Paper

I said a bit ago that I wanted to try some traditional media again after all the digital stuff. Here is a graphite drawing. I should have done without the white highlights. It just didn't seem as bright as I would have liked. Next time I may choose a bit paler paper, or a darker charcoal. Somehow the range needs to be expanded a bit. It seems graphite doesn't lend itself to deep shadow areas as much as stick charcoal would.
