Colored Pencil on Black Paper

Howdy! This is a quick sketch done this afternoon.
Sketched from a photograph by Steven Meisel.
I can easily spot the mistakes, but I thought it would be worth posting it anyway.
It's not 100% but as we all know "Practice makes perfect".
Thanks for stopping by.

Homage to Bouguereau

Hello everyone.
I had some time to spare between classes this evening, and decided to try some colored pencils I got as a gift (one of those 12 pencil kits).
Trying to copy the mastery of Adolphe-William Bouguereau is a hard enough challenge by itself, let alone with a limited palette.
About seven colored pencils were used in this sketch.
Thanks for stopping by.
