Portrait Wendy


Dear Matt,

Here is a new portrait. I didn’t do it exactly the way you did it because I wanted to do one more protrait with graphite and a dark background. I wanted to emphasize her eyes and the edge of the face and take the viewer’s eye away from her chin. I hope it works. I regret I didn’t take a wider sheet of paper because her hair is cropped and I didn’t want that, and it is the second time it has happened now !

I wanted to have a dark background but I find it difficult to know where to stop with the background tone so that it is not too present. What do you think ? Thank you in advance for your critique,
