In profile - getting back on my drawing legs again

Entry for the Marie Ellis OAM drawing prize (Jugglers Art Space Inc). Originally I was using the Gwen in the roadster image as my subject, but I changed my mind at the last minute. This is only about a5 size, but you never know. The title 'The Searching Profile {and the unmoving cloud}' refers to the lost feelings experienced through personal frustration and anxiety. There is comfort in the image inside the profile self portrait. The two figures poised atop a blustery hill, represent the positive burning perseverance and the inner assurance that nothing has to be endured alone.
