Katharine Hepburn by khinson Katharine Hepburn by khinson
This is most likely my final completed drawing of 2009 as my arm and eyes are just about worn out! I started this on 7/25/09 and it has taken me about 22 hours since then to complete it. It is on 9 x 12 Bristol board using pencils ranging from 2H to 6B. I dedicate this to my former co-worker Kathy who requested me to draw Katherine Hepburn. I hope she likes this when I get a copy to her! Happy New Year everyone!

The reference was from the Dr. Macro site.

I have absolutely no rights to Katharine Hepburn image or name.
