Self Portrait in coloured pencil

To the memory of the wonderful "Sheila"

The last portrait of Sheila 

This is so typical of Sheila. She loved cropping grass and always carried some in her mouth. 
This drawing is pen and ink on graphic film. I got the softened look by rubbing the applied ink with either an eraser or a cotton bud depending on the effect I wanted. 
Then I strengthened the darker areas. 
I added shades of green on the reverse of the drawing in coloured pencil.
