Kashelle N

Kashelle (fresh back from three months overseas) and I went to Brunswick Mall today, but the markets were almost non-existent today. Still, we tried some interesting gelati at Schlix (Kashelle had orange-carrot-and-ginger and I had black-sesame which was smoky and nutty and good) before going back to Auchenflower.

I brought out my Spectrums and some graphic novels for Kashelle to look at, and sketched this picture of her while she was reading. It’s with my Faber Castel markers, which I am growing to like more than I once did, but more on that later.

It is… recognisable, but I’d like to have done more with the dreadlocks and backlighting… and her nose, which is too wide here.
