9.5" x 6" charcoal and white chalk on paper

I was reading a book that was referencing Cave Art and the first ever recorded cave drawings our ancestral primal artists did 35 - 40.000 years ago in France and Italy and it seems that some of this drawings and paintings were made with charcoal and some combination of red ochre that were embedded in the cave's surface, it seems like not much has changed, the modern artist is still using this tool just as the primitive artist found it useful back then in the caves, I guess the expression might have changed, but a handy tool like charcoal is still very handy today:)

Interesting thought process. Some things in life never change. This is one of your best drawings. The emotion that this has is just wonderful. PatMeyerdailypainter.blogspot.com

Yeah, all the continuities of human nature are incredible when you really stop to consider them; whether's it's storytelling around a fire, or just painting with what's available, some things will never change.

Your piece is great; normally, I like sharp facial details, but you capture her features and shadow very well. The scant detail you place on her hair could almost make it pass for a shawl, which would add a touch of mystery if her emotions weren't so clearly depicted. I wish I could see some of the detail of her mouth better, but that's okay - nice work.
