Portrait of Kate

Portrait I did recently. It's been a while since I've gotten back into drawing heads. I've always had difficulty with symmetry, and I found myself going back and forth to a mirror to make sure one of the eyes is not too high or going too far off to the side. As I draw more and more, I realize that even if the drawing does not completely resemble the picture, it's not the end of the world, as long as I get a good likeness. One thing to note, though, I was drawing on a regular dinner table so the surface was flat instead of slanted like a drafting table, so the head appears longer than the picture, making the girl seem older.
