Sketch: Lady Catherine

A sketch of Lady Catherine DeBurgh from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice
I came across a bunch of C E Brock's illustrations for the novel and was hit with a desire to do Austen sketches. Why I then chose to do Lady Catherine, who I feel would not approve of the regency fashions and would not wear them, I know not. Her dress was fun, anyway (c.1780s), and gave me something to do while I was beating my head against brick walls coming up with unrelated concepts for work-art. And yes, her head is too big... but that's apt, right? =P

0.5 mechanical pencil with #B lead in Jasart My Memoirs Sketchbook. 
About 1.5 hours.
