'Pretty Please' Miniature

Not sure if this graphite miniature is finished as it seems rather light on screen. This piece needs to sit and be looked at again after a couple of days :) Maybe by then I can also get a better scan of it... the mini measures 2" x 1.5" with the girl's face being around 1" high. I admit that this piece was a bit of a struggle as I am out of practise with teeny studies after working much larger lately. But they are very absorbing and great to relax with in between commission work.

Absolutely beautiful lesley! I find scanning them a nightmare even in colour so can imagine in black and white it is even harder to get a true representation!

You've captured that 'look' so well!

Hi Lesley, you do such beautiful portraits. You have a great gift for faces. Love it.
