Hi Matt,

I hope all well! Please meet Marie-Gabrielle Capet. French Painter – 1761 to 1818.

This is a crop from her self portrait done in 1783. The full painting is her seated showing from waist up and she is holding her paint brush. I adore it. 

This is my graphite drawing, lots of value work, held back on darkening the nose any futher. I actually worked from both a black and white and color reference as the background and hair merged and I needed to see more detail. Thank  you Matt and look forward to your thoughts.

PS – I see that the camera tinged it yellowish – it is on white paper.

Thank you!
