Eleanor of Aquitaine

I finished the sketch for this drawing already a while ago and somehow avoided it then for a long time. Eleanor is quite demanding and I feared my work could possibly not be good enough.
I drew her yesterday and the day before yesterday and have to admit that I am quite pleased, I just have to take a better photo of it.
