As some of you know, portraits are my favorite by far. Whether painting or drawing, I like to capture certain expressions. That in itself is a challenge. That is one way of capturing emotion as well.

I used a reference photograph to draw this. Here's the link: With the reference images, I try not to copy exactly what I see. There's no point in that. An artwork should be unique, one in a million so to speak.

I felt a bit uninspired for a while, but hopefully I'll be back on track soon enough.

Very lovely portrait, Jaundre :) I think you captured something entirely different from the photograph, and gives her your own emotional context :) Love the way you create dark and light plays with the crosshatches and love, LOVE the way you draw eyes, they are so expressive <3


They eyes hold their own magic. That's one thing I love about drawing and painting portraits. Thanks Lise.
