Eliza sketch

I got up this morning and tried to draw in a new large painting but ended up wiping it off, so then I grabbed a small panel and told myself to just sit down and try something different.  I didn't quite capture Eliza, but I like it anyway.  It's so weird, one second you look at it and there she is and then you make one more stroke and she's gone away completely!  Working this small is like that, every stroke is going to make it or break it.  Ah well, next time.  Maybe I'll just rename it "Youthful Enthusiasm" then it can "feel" like Eliza without having to look exactly like her!
