I thought of stopping at this stage (below), but then, I had a pathological urge for closure, and therefore, had to fill in the blanks.

A very roughly and rapidly executed sketch. Took me around an hour or so. The paper is ordinary printing paper, and I realized it takes more effort to sketch on them rather than on toothed paper. On the plus side, nothing can go wrong as long as you are in control of your pencils and charcoal sticks. Things are predictable, and if the sketch is not good, the problem is with the craft, not the paper.

I loved drawing this, and I began with random charcoal marks along the outline. Do you think the child looks angry or sad? I think she’s indignant and furious, probably at her parents. With a slight expression of having been let down in her expectations.
