Miniature - Graphite Study of Jenny


Still enjoying experimenting with the dura-lar film in the evenings, here is a new graphite study of a very pretty young girl called Jenny. I could not resist transferring her serenity from a photograph (she lives a long way from us) into a portrait. People are more of a challenge to draw/paint but very well worth the effort. This image is much enlarged - the original is 3" x 2.5".

Really really beautiful Lesley, you really captured her looks. I bet you Jen is as tickled as can be to see herself on your web.

Hi Judy,

Isn't Jenny a lovely subject! I hope she likes what I did :) I just wish I could get a good scan as this study is not as dark as it looks on here. Lesley
