another portrait sketch

Here is a sketch I did today based on a lovely photograph by Anairam.  (It was published in this month's issue of Nylon.  I'm definitely a hopeless pop culture junkie.)  I did start working on those gummy cherries again, but was having some persistent technical problems producing the right darks (experiments are in progress), so I decided to take a break and work on this instead.

(I think portraits are much more fun than still life, to be honest, although they will definitely let you know if your drawing is not correct!)

This photographer does lovely dreamy fashion photography, as can be seen on her website at
